Gove accused of using national security council to promote 'neocon' ideas

A former Conservative prisons minister has accused Michael Gove of using Britain's national security council to promote "neocon" ideas that could encourage moderates to move towards Islamist extremism.

Crispin Blunt spoke out after an extraordinary cabinet row broke out between Gove and Theresa May over how to tackle extremism.

The home secretary went public with direct criticisms of the education secretary's handling of the Trojan horse affair – suggesting an internal cabinet tussle over who can be toughest on threats of extremism.
