Love him or loathe him, Gove is out.

David Cameron’s cabinet reshuffle ahead of the 2015 elections has seen Gove replaced by Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough.

Gove will now serve as Chief Whip. Chief Whips are the Head Whips for their respective political parties. Their role, like that of ordinary whips, is to encourage members of Parliament to vote the way their party would like when it comes to important divisions.

For our part we were never terribly impressed with Gove. He could talk the talk, but we never actually saw him walk the walk. If there’s one thing worse than a man without charisma, it’s one who pretends to have it.

Good luck, Nicky.
