This week we try to attribute blame for recent transport accidents (before learning better not to), talk to Robert Llewellyn about electric cars, find out about the latest controversy with the DSM5 psychiatry bible, as well as discover what’s going on with the banks, why we should perhaps forgive Michael Gove (!) and why we did actually land on the moon after all.

MICHAEL GOVE SPECIAL! But don’t let that put you off. We’ve three pieces about the education secretary including an interview with the teacher Gove attacked for using Mr Men to teach history, a look at Gove’s approach to classic literature, and a piece on how he used PR surveys to justify policy. We also have some exclusive clips from an event celebrating the reform of the libel laws featuring the likes of Dara O’Briain, Nick Cohen, Brian Cox and many more.
