Getting Off Like Gove

Section:

A judge with a sense of humour allowed a class A drug user to walk free on the basis he shouldn’t suffer any more than Michael GoveGetting Off Like Gove – Judge lets off drug user because of Michael Gove

Ann Widdecombe will no doubt have spluttered her Kellogg’s Corn Flakes this morning when she picked up her copy of The Daily Telegraph on reading that a judge has let a convicted drug user walk free from court.

 

In suggesting that the unnamed defendant should “suffer no more than dabbling in cocaine than should a former Lord Chancellor [Michael Gove],” Judge Owen Davies QC showed his sense of humour and this was followed by Tim Kiely, who represented the defendant, tweeting: “Who says humour and justice don’t work?”

 

With Mr Gove now trailing in the Conservative leadership race as a result of his hypocrisy over drugs, he might well now regret drawing attention to his nocturnal activities in his thirties. Effectively he’s legalised cocaine by confession.

  1. Great sentencing Mr Judge, and great writing Mr Matthew. I hear on the grapevine that Boots the Chemist will be stocking it too… once they overcome the ‘single-use’ plastic straw problem which campaigners are protesting about ?
