I’ve heard less about the Tory conference than the Labour one as Brighton is just down the road, and though I’m not a massive Michael Gove fan he does come out with the odd gem in the self deprecatory way only an old school politician can…and is considerably more eloquent in his use of language than the opposition ever manage. Angela take note ;)

Ideologically I'm diametrically opposed to Gove on most issues.
I do however respect him as a competent politician AND manager of people and events.
As Lord Chancellor and SoS for Justice he did a good job of sweeping up the mess left by the incompetent political show that was Chris Grayling. I think he'll do the same after the clown who's been sacked to let him accede to his present role.
