GOVE is running. Now you’re talking

Gove Joins U.K. Tory Race Saying Johnson Unfit to Be Premier

Yeah, yeah, you’ve never heard of him.  Unless you’ve been paying attention to UK politics in detail.  Or saw some of the better BREXIT debates.  Debates where he politely refused the bait into angry exchanges…and then metaphorically kicked the others in the nuts with reason and fact.


He’s not a populist.  He’s smart.  He appears to have integrity.  Yes, please.

The others:

Boris Johnson.  Plays the clown.  Uncomfortable history of europhilia, his ‘leading’ the Brexit campaign looked opportunistic.  When they won…he frigging disappeared, giving the distinct impression that he had no plans for post-win.  He expected to lose, he expected to be the next Tory leader off of the back of the loss.  He ended up winning on a ticket that he didn’t really want.  Has been making hints at backing away from the demands on immigration and much else.  Don’t trust him.  The clown act was amusing some years back but who wants a shambling leader of their country?  Not me.  Has huge opposition from within the Tory party for assassinating Dave, especially in such an opportunistic way.

Andrea Leadsom.  Great in the Brexit debates.  Solid history.  AGW sucker to the max.  Make her chancellor under Gove.

Crabb.  Is it?  Who?  Don’t care.  Son of a single mother.  So I suspect daddy issues and white knight inclination. Remainiac.  No, No, NO

Theresa May.  Useless.  has reigned in the Home Office for years allowing wave after wave of immigration from inside the EU and outside.  Control freak tendencies.  Talks the talk but found to be quadraplegic when it comes to delivering the walk.  Useless.  No, No, NO

Gove.  His statement in full:

The British people voted for change last Thursday. They sent us a clear instruction that they want Britain to leave the European Union and end the supremacy of EU law. They told us to restore democratic control of immigration policy and to spend their money on national priorities such as health, education and science instead of giving it to Brussels. They rejected politics as usual and government as usual. They want and need a new approach to running this country.

There are huge challenges ahead for this country but also huge opportunities. We can make this country stronger and fairer. We have a unique chance to heal divisions, give everyone a stake in the future and set an example as the most creative, innovative and progressive country in the world.

If we are to make the most of the opportunities ahead we need a bold break with the past.

I have repeatedly said that I do not want to be prime minister. That has always been my view. But events since last Thursday have weighed heavily with me.

I respect and admire all the candidates running for the leadership. In particular, I wanted to help build a team behind Boris Johnson so that a politician who argued for leaving the European Union could lead us to a better future.

But I have come, reluctantly, to the conclusion that Boris cannot provide the leadership or build the team for the task ahead.

I have, therefore, decided to put my name forward for the leadership. I want there to be an open and positive debate about the path the country will now take. Whatever the verdict of that debate I will respect it. In the next few days I will lay out my plan for the United Kingdom, which I hope can provide unity and change.

He genuinely ‘gets’ the referendum issues and the desired result of that vote.

This is great news.  Now, does it happen?  And then, is he what he appears to be?  But he looks like the best option so far.  Candidates must declare by noon patriarchal time.




Boris is NOT running!  

May stabbed the chancer in the back, Gove stabbed him in the front.  Gone.

    Waiting to see what happens in the EU, whatever that is…sounds crap. The new plans for a glorious Neues Vierte Reich were announced yesterday. I am REALLY interested in how that pans out in Eastern Europe and the Scandies. Everywhere outside the core countries. Oh not so fast, also in France with Marine le Pen. Geert Wilders (sp) in Holland. etc etc

    All their Christmases just came at once. The EU has openly declared that it wants fundamental social integration and an EU army to boot. Anyone in the EU now has a clear decision to make regarding following the UK (I hope) OUT.

    And mine, all my Christmases. A poll showed that all the remainiac whining and tears aside, 2:1 people DO NOT WANT ANOTHER REFERENDUM.

    The Scottish attempt to split and join the EU looks fucked. Hopefully the SNP will split like the Labour party is doing: true believer vs (loosely speaking) pragmatist and proceed to destroy itself. Leaving Scotland to return to reasoned debate, which would be GREAT.

    Channel 4 News, usually harder left than al-jaBeeba, excelled itself last night.

    Barking mad and vindictive over the EU.

    Showcased the Labour party situation with alleged pragmatist vs true-believer…no common ground, no ability to compromise, no mechanism to peacefully find a settlement unless Jezza Corbyn relents. And he’s a true believer that spent decades in the wilderness who just got handed the big job by destiny itself…you do the maths. We shall see. The Iraq war enquiry comes out next week. Jezza might fancy slipping the blade between the shoulder blades of every Labour MP that voted for the war (all his enemies) and say that Bliar should be put on trial for war-crimes. Great, great times.

    Flagellated the UK enthusiastically over a wave of hate crime that the Police say the stats do not reflect. Treasonous encouragement of hate and division at a time that we need calm and unity.

    Like the beeb, channel 4 gets some licence fee money. Time to stop that shit. For the beeb and channel 4…enough. They are now clear enemies of the state encouraging despair, conflict and hate with lies and exaggerations.

    Nicky Thicky Morgan will not be running on her ticket of yoof votes for 16 & 17 year olds

    Nicky Morgan s not without humour and is capable of being really quite noisily assertive”

    Mrs Morgan is not as wet as her critics say. She is not without humour and is capable of being really quite noisily assertive. She plainly thinks as little of her Labour shadow, Tristram Hunt, as Mr Gove did, but whereas he punctured posh Tristram with deft irony, Mrs Morgan goes for a more straightforward abuse. She shouts at him – her eyes bulging like a couple of gobstoppers.

    my boldening, obs.

    The EU has reacted to the wrong voting on the referendum with a new poster campaign

    H/T Here

    Research into confirmation bias at Scarfolk University in 1973 showed that 87% of people will not deviate from their beliefs, no matter how much counter evidence is presented to them. However, the study found that the figure drops considerably if torture is used, with more than 50% of subjects losing all their beliefs, largely because their brains stop functioning during the study.

    Moreover, charity given as of right, for that is what the welfare state does, favors the undeserving more than the deserving, in so far as the undeserving have a capacity and even talent for generating more neediness than the deserving. (They also tend to be more vocal in their demands.)
    The welfare state in fact dissolves the very notion of desert, because there is no requirement that a beneficiary prove he deserves what he is legally entitled to. And where what is given is given as of right, not only will a recipient feel no gratitude for it, but it must be given without compassion-that is, without regard to any individual’s actual situation. In the welfare state, the notion of a specially deserving case is prohibited, for it implies a distinction between the deserving and the undeserving.

    Before there was American exceptionalism there was British exceptionalism – in both cases, based on the idea that freedom is the unique mission of the English-speaking peoples.
    It need not be put in such exclusionary terms. I would be very happy if many more countries regarded themselves as having a proprietary national interest in liberty. (The French think they do, but they don’t.) At the very least, we should do what we can to preserve or re-establish that idea where it has a long history.

    At last! Michael Gove has finally decided that he wants to be leader of the Conservative Party – and therefore Prime Minister by September.

    He’s the right man for the job. Indeed, in a field of eccentric and mediocre candidates, he’s the only one who inspires excitement as well as confidence.

    Leadsom has a lot of strengths, but…AGW and maybe a belief in the old soft hearted inability to make the tough decisions on charity etc, We need a massive clearout of the alleged charidee sector and other cockwomble soft headed thinking. Like diversity. Fembotulism. I still think that she’s the 2nd best option, so…not terrible IMGPO.

    May just announced that she wants to remain under the ECHR and that’s a disasterous no-no. We need our legal system to be sovereign. How can we not regard our own British courts as being capable of delivering justice? And so put out trust in a cobbled together ramshackle horror built in Europe, which uses it’s own system of laws in the other countries.

    We need to believe in ourselves. We need to stop listening to the wankpuffins* wibbling about if we leave then other countries will take advantage and leave too…so injustices in their countries. Our justice in our country first and foremost.

    *my newest favourite word. Cockwomble is still right up there though.

    The UK needs Johnson as leader like a hole in the head (IMHO). I haven’t read the link at 5:45 pm yet, but from the little I’ve seen of him Gove is a class act. Will he turn out to be just another disappointment, though? If he becomes PM, time will tell. He will need some leeway. It will be a baptism of fire for a new PM.

    Commonwealth might finally prove useful….
    In a wonderful show of Commonwealth solidarity, New Zealand has offered its top trade negotiators to the United Kingdom, to support the British civil service as it prepares for the exciting prospect of seeking new trade deals with countries across the globe.
    “We’ve simply made an offer that we as a country, that is a long-standing friend, stands ready to be useful in any way we can be.”, said Murray McCully, New Zealand’s foreign minister who confirmed he had had discussions with Jonathan Sinclair, Britain’s High Commissioner to New Zealand.
    Any newly-liberated UK trade team will certainly be busy, with Business Secretary, Sajid Javid already revealing he has had multiple offers to begin trade negotiations immediately with a number of nations including Australia, South Korea, Canada, India and Mexico.
    The Conservative minister also announced that he and Lord Price would be going on trade missions to China, Hong Kong and Brazil in order to strengthen Britain’s links with other economies.
    The world is our oyster!

    Regarding the butt-hurt remainiacs

    It comes from the same mentality as the “safe spaces” lunacy of American universities, and is every bit as ridiculous. The butt-hurt won’t see how pathetic they look to the rest of the world, but surely the MSM must be starting to feel some pangs of embarrassment by now?
