Is he just trying to be the next Boris?

Young Tory in the 1980s turns out to be a complete gobshite.

I'm shocked to find gambling going on.

Leave Govey alone you beasts! At least he didn’t black up as a youthful folly, unlike that nice Mr Trudeau (31).

Hello you! All OK?

"Fuzzy wuzzies" might object.

This was always coming and he knew it.

Hence taking the purple pill and he can boogie.

Yes sir.

Man who wrote book approved of by Anders Breivik is a racist? You don't say.

Gove's take on the Tory 'Red Wall' idea: "the happy south stamps over the cruel, dirty, toothless face of the northerner"

TheVoiceOfReason - 14 Sep 2021 08:51:02 (#8 of 13)

Hello helen. I’m well thank you, hope you all are too. Still trying to stay off GU but I had to come back when Govey needed me.

The thing that might come back to haunt him is the flippancy about Leon Brittan perhaps.

Ricolas - 14 Sep 2021 09:57:25 (#10 of 13)

What it does show is that there were a lot of rumours about Leon B in the Tory party itself back then. And Gove was helping to propagate them. Now, what happened to the last chap who propagated rumours about Leon B? 18 years, wasn't it?

<waves goodbye to Gove>

LB died 2015, not about to sue.

In one speech, the minister described Prince Charles as a “dull, wet, drippy adulterer”


Not sure why this has been added to the charge sheet - it's just an observation

Heh, well quite.
