    Is it true that Michael Gove has retweeted Chris Packhams twaddle about his gong being 'a silent thanks' from a 'terrified fox or trapped badger', Gove adding his congratulations on a 'well deserved recognition'?
    (letter in FW)
    I don't do the twatter thing, and would be grateful if someone could enlighten me.

    I don,t believe anything Gove says anymore, he,s turned into a right snake, a career politician of the highest order.

    Thanks An Gof

    and this is the same Chris Packham who for instance issued that creepy 'we're watching you when you're asleep' veiled threat backalong, and is happy to be seen in the company of people who further advocate furthering such nasty behaviour,
    and has been so vocal in his opposition to DEFRA policy

    I don't know that it's healthy to be personally critical of the serving Minister with so much power of me, mine, and our future.......
    ......but what a hypocritical thoughtless little toerag.

    As said above, he's a career politician, who'd seemingly tell anyone what they want to hear to forward his journey. But that tweet is a new low.

    Come on, Mr Gove must be a good man, he was a leading light in the fight for Brexit!

    You can certainly believe what Mrs. Stanley wrote in her letter, @egbert.

    And it is not the first time Mr. Gove has become entangled with media 'luvvies'. Here he is with one superannurated, new qualified star gazer, Dr. Brian May.

    That was autumn 2017, and in January 2018, the aforementioned badger loving guitar player, was guest at a TB symposium held at Defra Towers and headed by Michael Gove.

    Is this the same Mr Gove that supposedly told the OFC that organic producers were doing great things in building soil OM and sequestering carbon? No mention of destroying/releasing it all when they ploughed it up (let alone using a summer of recreational tillage to kill weeds & bugs), or of the conventional no-till farmers sequestering the same without releasing it again.:rolleyes:

    It's frightening when we see who really has his ear, and who will be directing ag policy for as long as he doesn't slime up his greasy pole again.:mad:

    Just ask teachers what they thought of him as the education secretary. They should ban politicians from education and let the experts get on with it. Do you remember what Gove did to Bojo after the last election!! Anyone who smiles through their teeth is not to be trusted.

    Many alleged celebrities who have an overinflated opinion of themselves eventually tend to do something stupid that brings them crashing down in the eyes of the public.
    It’s just a matter of time with Mr. Packham.

    Don’t worry he has set himself up already to cover all scenarios, he can blame it on his autism:)

    Mr Gove good at trying to cover up for all scenarios too.

    Here he is last month meeting a group of Aberdeenshire farmers round a kitchen table

    No doubt he told them how important they and food production will be after Bexit before retuning south to carry on finalising the rewilding plans with his board of Defra.

    A master at playing to his audience but has always oozed insincerity to me.
