Michael Gove is one of the goons who pushed us towards Brexit WHILE DOING NO PLANNING FOR IT WHATSOEVER. While this has made Brexit pretty much impossible to deliver, Gove has at least managed to exit from something.

Twategy

After learning that Tory members fear a Corbyn government more than anything, Gove started making speeches like:

I believe that climate change is the second greatest threat we face. The first is Jeremy Corbyn. The third is a climate-fuelled Corbynado made entirely from gusty socialists.

And:

It’s crucial that Britain leaves the European Union, but it’s even more vital that Corbyn leaves Britain. I’m calling this project Corbexit. Let’s take £350m back from the EU and spend it on launching Corbyn into space!

And:

The problem with Jeremy Corbyn is sooner or later you run out of other people’s radishes.

When asked to explain what this last point meant, Gove claimed that Jeremy Corbyn had tampered with his speech notes. And yet, despite this obviously strong campaign, Gove has now been tossed into “the dustbin of history”.

Shmexit

Whatever your opinion on the EU is, you have to admit that not planning how to carry out Brexit was a spectacularly bad idea. Or maybe you don’t? Gove certainly doesn’t excuse his lack of forethought, and he came this close to becoming the prime minister.

But yeah – keep telling us about how the Tories support the idea of a meritocracy.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
