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.
