I suspect the new Environment Secretary, Theresa Villiers, will be more like Owen Paterson than Michael Gove.
I fervently hope not, but the signs aren't good.

If you'd told me a few years ago that I would one day regret the departure of #MichaelGove from a government ministry, I'd have thought you were off your rocker.
But yes, I regret it.
Against all predictions (mine included), he was the best Environment Sec we've had for decades
The obvious (and predicted) candidate for Environment Secretary was @ZacGoldsmith. The fact that he was passed over for someone without any of his credentials is a worrying sign. Is this going to be yet another evidence-free ministry?
Let's hope not.

‼️CEO VoteLeave Mathew Elliott

In 2004, Elliott had founded the TaxPayers’ Alliance, a rightwing pressure group advocating low taxes and minimal gov’t, & rose to win one of the most coveted and responsible jobs of 2016: chief executive of Vote Leave.

In 2012 – or possibly earlier – Matthew Elliott was targeted by a man the Home Office now believes was a Russian spy. SERGEY NALOBIN was the first secretary in the Russian embassy’s political section in London when Elliott met him

📌Nalobin “was tasked with building relations with MPs [and] a regular fixture on the Westminster drinks circuit and at political party conferences”.

Morning y’all,

here’s a quick reminder of what @michaelgove said about the 1.2mn @BritishInEurope during the Referendum.

He said ‘international treaties’ would protect us after Brexit.

You can judge for yourself whether this is true.
#MichaelGove #PutItBackToThePeople
And here’s a quick reminder of what David Liddington said. Again, I’ll let you judge if he was right
Just to add: it’s unprecedented for a government in a developed affluent democracy to rob its own citizens of rights on which they have built lives without even giving them a voice.

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson
