Michael Gove opts for a better Frayne of mind in retelling message
James Frayne's appointment as media chief at Department for Education may be a masterstroke if his blog is anything to go by
Everything Michael Gove touches turns to dust
Michael Gove school rebuilding 'gaff': fallout
Michael Gove has been having a torrid time so he is being re-launched. So many advisors, so many spads. (Hallelujah!) Even The Spectator's Fraser Nelson (of which more anon) refers to him as "the laddie". (http://www.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/6676218/the-laddie-is-for-turning.thtml) While we ought to be listening to Highland Laddie, we invite you to listen to a piece of drookit laddie, instead.

The coalition government is going to have to shell out shed loads of wonga to satisfy the parties about the crappy nature of the inept ministers.
At the beginning Danny Alexander bore the brunt of the Westminster Village jokes. It is open season now, with many of them even reaching Cameron.
Gove is resented by many. He is a product of Scotland and he is telling the English how to run their schools. Harman’s move to pillory Alexander as a "ginger rodent" failed. The English love their animals and to anthropomorphize the human only brings out the sympathy vote.
Gove is different. He is a Scotch parvenu and suffers from strangulated vowels. Two Scottish politicians who went down this route were Malcolm Rifkind and the late Robin Cook. To them gravitas meant grevitas ( as in sacks/sex ) with the result that they were regarded as second rate and thus despised.
Fraser Nelson should look out. He sounds as if he needs both an oral enema and a cure for irritable vowel syndrome.
Gove has strangulated vowels. This causes clarity dissonance. No Morningside no Kelvinside. If Gove is not careful he will be known Glengormless if he is lucky or as the Pied Piper of Pimplico.

Has Craig Oliver been heard on Radio 4 recently? Is he doing the stringulation or de-stringulation of Gove?
