by hiving Literature off from the English Language paper, then of course it becomes an option which most students will choose not to do. The question then is whether this is intentional, and if so why? ...because it seems to conflict with Gove's blather about 'cultural entitlement' and all the Hirsch stuff.
So, instead of that coming out, Gove made mincemeat of Hunt trying to be clever and the moment is lost. And then these twerps wonder why we think the House of Commons is a waste of space.
