Is Gove just marching to Cummings' "GET BREXIT DONE" mantra or has he got previous form for wanting to harm relations with Ireland?

Gove is Boris but better able to control his anger, penis and urges to throw latin bullshit into normal speech. Outside of that, he will say and do anything that advances the cause of M. Gove or the people paying his wages (his *real* wages, that is). If he suddenly found out supporting the GFA was beneficial to him, he'd be its biggest cheerleader and claim he never said what he said previously.

He is as polite as he is thoroughly dishonest and untrustworthy.

Attach as much weight to it as you would, considering it's from a professional comedian and recounted in a satirical column for the Observer, but I was amused by Stewart Lee's anecdote of him running into Gove at a motorway service station, sometime post-Brexit (they were contemporaries at Oxford), and Gove looking utterly petrified of all the normal people and possibly being recognised. Anyway, according to Lee, Gove asks him how the comedy thing's going. Lee says fine, then asks how "the politics thing" is going, and Gove replies that it's fine, as if it's just another job.

I remember that Gove In The Garden video I posted a week or so ago where he somehow displayed an even bigger misunderstanding of Game of Thrones than Dominic Raab did.

Is there a single scientist in Britain who’d disagree that Gove talks bollocks?
Britain should celebrate its looming break from the “anti-science and anti-innovation” approach of the European Union even if it costs its industry more in red tape, the government’s Brexit supremo Michael Gove said on Thursday.

Gove was asked in the House of Commons by an opposition lawmaker why companies in the chemicals industry should have to stump up an extra 1 billion pounds ($1.3 billion) in the midst of an economic crisis to duplicate regulation that it already has with the EU.

Gove, the minister handling Brexit divorce issues for Britain and one of the leading advocates for the break with Brussels, said extra red tape was the price of securing autonomy and independence to become more competitive in the future.

“It’s an inevitable consequence of leaving the European Union Single Market and Customs Union and freeing ourselves from the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union that we do have to have our own regulatory systems in place,” he said.

“One of the great prizes of leaving the European Union is that when it comes to life sciences and other areas we will be free from the often anti-science and anti-innovation approach that the EU has had hitherto.”

Britain’s chemicals industry, which includes companies such as Ineos, Johnson Matthey, Croda and Synthomer, is bound to the EU by an especially dense web of laws and safety standards, and an EU products registry called Reach. https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-brita ... KKBN26M5TB

How many votes do those scientists have? How much of a public voice do they have?

How many morons are there who will lap this crap up?

Wasn't doing away with "red tape" one of the reasons Gove and his mendacious cronies gave as a reason to vote Leave?

That lasted well, didn't it.
