Quote Of The Day
“This is an absolute disgrace and a real step backwards in terms of education and health. We have spent years telling people that running is actually an enjoyable, rewarding and beneficial activity. … But now Mr. Gove is sending out a clear message that it’s bad – a form of punishment on a par with picking up litter or doing 100 lines. … This is demonising running. I can only assume that Mr. Gove or one of his Education department minions really didn’t like cross-country at school.”
