Among the most pernicious myths in British politics is the quaint delusion that academic selection is a Conservative policy that Labour has always opposed. The truth is rather different and yesterday, as Michael Gove freed schools to do almost everything except select according to academic ability, the Guardian asked me to write about it. My column seems to have provoked interest in some quarters, support in several and incandescent fury in others. I'm sure you have views. Feel free to share them.
