My God, it's almost as if the man imagines he has some credibility left. He rolled over once, and will roll again. The way the wind is really blowing is indicated by Michael Gove's words in the same article: "I don't have any particular opposition to involving any organisation that is going to improve our education, however, we don't need to have profit-making organisations involved at the moment." [my superfluous emphasis]
Anyone interested in collecting ludicrous lies might also savour Gove's claim that "I'm a pragmatist not an ideologue".
