Gove has no need for experts remember. We are heading for a more US style administration with political appointments over career officials. It might turn out to be more dynamic but can also be light on expertise, consistency along with a lack of effective checks and balances.I see Teaser tore strips off Oiky Gove today over the appointment of David Frost as National Security Adviser. You'd think he had enough on his plate with the small matter of the 'easiest deal in history' trade agreement to cross the i's and dot the t's of with M Barnier.
Seems odd that the day after Gove makes a long speech about, amongst other things, the 'lack of expertise' in Whitehall, that they appoint a NSA who has never held a military or security role.
Hey ho, joined up Government. Can't beat it.
