Boris Johnson Sacks Most Senior Education Official

Boris Johnson has sacked the most senior civil servant at the Department for Education in the growing fallout from the exams fiasco and the U-turn over masks in schools.
Jonathan Slater has been told by Sir Mark Sedwill, the cabinet secretary, that he is to leave his position by the end of the week. He is expected to be in line for a six-figure pay-out, believed to be £200,000. But he was due to leave next spring anyway!

Surely he could have been put in charge of the paper-clip department for just a few months more, or is he under oath NOT to tell us how bad things really are at Education? And of course the OBE will follow, you be sure of it!
