Does he want his old job back?


With Lord Chancellor Liz Truss occupied by a developing prison crisis, her predecessor, Michael Gove, has waded into the the row over the right of newspapers to label top judges ‘ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE’ and other nasty things.

Fresh off a plane from the US, where he has been covering the US election for The Times, relative Twitter newbie Gove has had this to say on the matter this evening…

Well, it certainly beats Truss’s statement.

But in terms of substance, it doesn’t really go beyond what Theresa May said yesterday about “valuing both the independence of our judiciary [and] the freedom of our press”.

Missing your old job, are you Michael?
