Gove: Mitchell Has To Go

The news is full of reports claiming cabinet ministers want Andrew Mitchell to go, Lobby hacks report that up to six cabinet ministers are openly ridiculing the Chief-Whip and want him gone. None of the stories name the cabinet ministers…

So who are the mysterious ministers ridiculing the Chief-Whip? The most senior minister who thinks the Chief-Whip should go is Michael Gove. He was openly mocking Mitchell’s position at a drinks reception at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham. Not that the Lobby hacks who heard Gove joking at Mitchell’s expense seem to want to tell their readers and viewers what they know. The Lobby system once again ensuring that they keep the truth about a politician’s real views from the public. Tory MPs are queuing up to tell all and sundry that the Chief-Whip has had his chips. On the doorstep for Police Commissioner elections Tory activists are fed up of hearing the plebgate story thrown back in their faces…

    I Mitchell many years ago when he came to speak to our YC’s – I formed the view that he was a total arse licker who would say anything that would get him a promotion and did not hold many views of his own.

    So I do not care if he did or did not say the word Pleb – He has got to go

    He should have gone already, on his own accord. Foolish man.
    Now Dave HAS to defend him to stop Miliman claiming a victory.

    And Judge-Led Milly would claim a kill even though that ‘kill’ would have as much substance as the Taliban claiming responsibility for hurricane Nadine.

      …or indeed my preening cat bringing in a bird that has flown into a window and broken its neck and expecting me to believe it has caught it.

        Pets tend to be infantilised and domestic cats exhibit kittenish behaviour such as playing with prey, miaowing, and presenting something they have ‘caught’ to their surrogate mother, i.e. their owner.

    This is confusing. I’d always thought of Gove as a sensible sort of chap, in a grammar-school way. Perhaps he is only sensible on certain subjects, however. Watch out, Govey, you could be the one who needs a bit of support from your colleagues next time.

      I think Gove is playing a clever game to up his profile. He strikes me as a chap with plenty of ambition.

    Worse, people are now undoing my good work in saving the Banks – RBS for instance!

    For one wonderful moment I thought it said ‘Gove & Mitchell have to go’.

    Universal benefits really do need to be looked at!

    Mitchell is staying Guido. And I am sure you are fully aware of that. Now move along to matters of importance such as how to boil an egg.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
