I still can’t decide which line of Bob and Roberta Smith’s inspiring Letter to Michael Gove is my favourite. Maybe: ‘Michael, a look at your tie and shirt combination in images of you online informs me you are not a visually minded person.’ Or: ‘You are removing all the ladders to the disenfranchised. You need to rethink the role of creativity in society and realize innovation comes from optimism, creativity, risk taking and art.’ The whole thing is really worth a read though.
