Gove NOT Resigning

After boundless speculation, Michael Gove has decided to stay at Defra. Sources close to hims say he felt it would be “a nihilistic act” achieving nothing, and that it is better to make things work from the inside. Gove, of course, did not take this ‘remain and reform’ view during the referendum…

UPDATE: Gove’s statement…

“I’ve had a very good morning in a series of meetings with my colleagues here at Defra, just making sure that we have the right policies on the environment, on farming and on fisheries for the future.

And l’m also looking forward to continuing to work with all my Government colleagues, and all my colleagues in Parliament in order to make sure that we get the best future for Britain.

I think its absolutely vital that we focus on getting the right deal in the future and making sure that in the areas that matter so much to the British people, we can get a good outcome.”

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
