A short but insightful piece on American Thinker. An extract:
One politician who used Gove’s joke for her own ends was the Labour MP Jess Phillips. (Phillips once said that the equivalent to the mass sexual assaults by Muslims in Cologne occurred every week –- by white men — in a single Birmingham city-center street.) She’s well-known for being purer than pure when it comes to these issues. That is, she virulently anti-“Tory” and also a massively self-conscious feminist and self-selling politician. She wrote:
“Michael Gove just left the studio without his dignity.”
In other words, Gove’s joke has been used for political ends and/or for moral grandstanding.
