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…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
