Have I been dreaming? Did I really hear Mr Gove answer some questions on the Andrew Marr programne with 'YES'? He didn't go round the houses or avoid the question altogether. He just said 'YES'. Is this a C-change in British politics?

He has also been talking about relaxing the public sector pay freeze.

Frankly I think he has his eye on the leadership post when TM falls on her sword.

public sector pay freeze was dropped in Scotland last week ,nurses are already paid better here ,not a huge amount but a few hundred pounds a year.The dropping of the cap should help encourage more to stay here .

I'm enjoying Dead Ringers, they do Gove brilliantly

I was impressed by him.

I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him. After his dictatorial attitude to the education system, I fear for the environment.

Dead ringers have him portrayed accurately imo. stirring the pot between various factions, building to his bid to replace Theresa.

Dead Ringers have also got TM of to a T.

john Mcdonell and Jeremy Corbyn are brilliant as well. This weeks episode had me laughing whilst getting the evening meal together, what a treat.

It's interesting the politicians in the U.K. accept this kind of irreverent humour. Not so the current Potus

I was rather worried when I found that Gove seemed to be making sense. I wonder if he can keep it up. The trouble is I'm sure he is ASD and it all depends what his latest hobby horse is.
