Labour calls for investigation into Michael Gove’s special advisers – Guardian

Labour has called for an official investigation into claims that special advisers to the education secretary, Michael Gove, have used the social networking site Twitter to make anonymous attacks on journalists.

Stephen Twigg, the shadow education secretary, has written to the cabinet secretary, Sir Jeremy Heywood, asking for a formal investigation into the claims in the Observer on Sunday, and previous allegations that education department staff were behind an attack on the former children’s minister Tim Loughton in which he was called “a lazy, incompetent narcissist”.
