Cocaine, kids. Just say no!
This place is not a place of honor, no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here, nothing valued is here.
What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us.
This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

I heard his (Gove’s) now ex-wife describing him as a modern day Dante. I’m not sure how good Dante was at doing funny voices, so maybe Gove is even more of a cultural touchstone.
Would you like your chakras realigned?

Are you sure she didn't mean he's just a bit slow? <<- bad musical joke
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

Which circle is he moving through now? Eighth or Ninth?

I've heard a lot of discussion that this was a deliberate dead cat ploy by Gove to distract from the message that he was delivering that the election manifesto promise of building 300k houses per year wouldn't be delivered and in fact could never have be delivered and as such that they weren't even going to attempt to try and deliver it.

And it has "worked" in the sense that nobody is currently discussing the utter failure of the government's flag-ship housing policy ... no instead we are all discussing the fact that one of the most senior and supposedly able Tory ministers, the one tasked with delivering the levelling-up agenda that is supposedly will define the entire government's whole programme, is actually an unhinged, coked-up maniac.

Given Gove's fondness for badly-dated cultural references I should probably post a picture of a tired-and-emotional Charlie Sheen saying "Winning!" now.
