Mr Gove's contribution (and only his contribution) to yesterday's EMA debate is given on his webpage
Mr Gove delivers unctious praise to Mr Burnham before pulling him up for making a comment about Mrs Gove's worries about her cleaner. He then launches into a series of rhetorical questions such as, "Does he back or oppose the growth in apprenticeships?".
After several of these he eventually allowed other members to speak. He then made an oily comment to Hazel Blears before launching into more rhetorical questions.
He began 'reminding' the House of the 'dire economic situation': 'The OECD said that in 2000, thanks to Conservative policies, the UK had one of the best structural fiscal positions in the world, but by 2007 we had one of the worst in the G7'.
It was the above passage that I misheard. I thought Mr Gove was referring to the OECD 2000 figures for education attainment in the UK which have been discredited by the OECD. I'm afraid that when I heard Mr Gove use the words OECD and 2000 in the same sentence I started yelling at the TV since he has a track record of trotting out these erroneous educational attainment figures.
Mr Gove then became rather heated. The words, "Sit down", seen in type do not quite reflect the temper shown by Mr Gove at the time. However, the Speaker's rebuke followed.
The above is only the start of the debate and if you want to compare Mr Gove's arguments with Mr Burnham's more measured, focussed and structured contribution you will need to consult Hansard
