Gove and the EU


SIR – You report (June 6) that the EU’s negotiator­s have said they preferred dealing with Michael Gove, rather than Lord Frost.

Little wonder. It was Mr Gove who, in May 2019, was all for the adoption of Theresa May’s appalling “deal” because, as he put it, “we have to face facts”. As I pointed out in a letter you published, Mr Gove’s choice of “facts” was based entirely on the perceived expediency of getting “Brexit” over and done with – no matter the travesty that the deal he countenanc­ed would have made of the referendum result – and deliberate­ly ignoring the actual facts concerning the promise made to voters that the referendum would be honoured whatever the result.
