Sorry it would be like Hitler cracking a joke ....to me...
He obviously has a good script writer and I'm sure he did some acting in an earlier life.
He's a despicable creep.
His own party's Brexit policy is the same.
He is probably correct. (cf another thread, and another, and another, and another ad infinitum....)
Er, adult language alert!
So, if it's OK for Gove to use this word in the mother of parliaments, why can't it be written on these pages?
TES holds teachers to higher standards.
Everyone holds teachers to higher standards
However, achieving a higher standard than Michael Gove is not exactly taxing.
Maybe it falls under Parliamentary privilege?
Maybe he meant the "dog's b******s", which I understand is an accepted colloquialism for "very good" from some of our younger viewers, innit? Yeah! (Is he down wid da boyz in da hood?)
Why can Gove be quoted as saying bolocks but I am not allowed to write the word - even if it is referring back to Gove's foul mouthed comment?
Lets try it: I think that most of what Michael Gove says and does is ********.
I am assuming that it has been censored.
I also assume that the censor will intervene if I use that word in another context.
Let's try it: Much of what Nomad writes is Right Wing Tory propaganda ********.
Again, I assume that it has been censored.
Why the double standards, I wonder? Class discrimination in my opinion. Just because Michael Gove is a greasy, nasty piece of work, who has done more damage to the UK's State education system than any of his predecessors, that is no excuse for the TES to lower it's high standards for that piece of Tory trash.
Only a rabid Tory could possibly find anything remotely amusing about Michael Gove.
Our economy is more dynamic than the Eurozone, we have the most attractive capital city on the globe, the greatest “soft power” and global influence of any state and a leadership role in NATO and the UN. Are we really too small, too weak and too powerless to make a success of self-rule? On the contrary, the reason the EU’s bureaucrats oppose us leaving is they fear that our success outside will only underline the scale of their failure.
Michael Gove February 2016.
London is gorgeous.
We're a NATO leader. Ha ha. Tell that to the Donald.
Our successes will embarrass the puny efforts of our European neighbours - they will be kissing our shoes and pleading for crumbs from our table.
Our mighty and powerful government has everything in hand. We bunged Eddie Stobart a few bob to send his trucks down to Kent for a cuppa and a sandwich on an abandoned airfield. It all went without a hitch, I tell you! 87 trucks! Was there pandemonium? No. Were blows exchanged? No. It was the epitome of an orderly...erm, er, hmm, truckers' picnic?
I don't want to belong to the EU for many reasons (although am beginning to change my mind) but I concede that Gove knows blox when he hears it. He writes and speaks enough of it, after all. If anyone knows blox then it's Michael.
Nah. Just someone with a sense of humour who is able to keep his blood pressure in check.
Never Mind the Ballocks......apparently when lovemaking he adult talks non stop.
I note a huge discrepancy with the mainstream media massive uproar about mouthing something but then a small to no coverage of Gove's offensive comment. The reality is that his comments are simply a very poor attempt to distract from his own party's excruciatingly poor performance.
You may find him amusing but I won't laugh at anything he says. The subtext is that Gove is somehow ok because he is amusing. He most certainly is not.
Gove caused a great deal of damage to the education system in the UK when he was education minister. He is not paid to be funny. He is meant to be representng his constituents.
You, Nomad, seem to another Tory apologist.
Also, Nomad, you seem to enjoy repeating an obviously biased opinion as it were somehow ok because you deem it funny...
Well here is one I laughed heartily at
