Gove gets it absolutely right

If you haven't done so already, I urge you to read Michael Gove's speech to the Bow group on Gordon Brown. It strips the dour one bare down to his centralist Statist bones.

This is a real intellectual tour de force. Brown's 'Liberty' speech, like his 'Courage' book, was nothing more than an incoherent jumble of jejune borrowings.

It must have taken a strong sense of duty for you to wade through the imtellectual inadequacies of Brown's political philosophy R; I felt, too, for all the economists who, for more than 10 dreary years, have put up with his equally babyish understanding of economics and financial matters. Why do those without the training think it's easy? I wonder if someone gave him a violin or a harpsichord he wouldn't seriously attempt to play.

Mr Gove's speech, in contrast, is so good and grasps so well the shambles dressed in arrogance that Brown has for a mind, (upon which no-one would be so unkind as to remark if it were not constantly thrust forward as proof of right to govern our country), providing, in passing, a feast of quotations, illustrations and references for all and any Brown occasion, qualifies for a Nobel.
