I’ve watched a very entertaining Commons exchange between Michael Gove and Ed Balls. This is Gove’s take on Balls requesting a big real terms increase in his budget:
He’s the Katie Price of public spending, the Jordan of this government
All he’s interested in is being on the front pages, so he’s massively inflated what he’s got to offer and now the last few months have left him dangerously over-exposed.
That means he’s now in desperate need of support before it all goes south. But given his record of loyalty you’d have to be a very brave man to get into bed with him.
Sam Coates has spotted that Maria Miller was not entirely impressed by the joke.
