Michael Gove has been in the news rather a lot – *govelling* in The House of Commons after his unfortunate errors and there was a YouTube video floating about of him falling over.  Now to add to his woes Tom Watson MP – he who called Mr Gove a *Pipsqueak* and had to withdraw on the instructions of the *sanctimonious little dwarf* (Speaker Bercow was called this last week!) –  has put the boot in with a wonderfully crafted explanation of why he called Gove a pipsqueak.  It is worth a read even if you can’t stand Labour.   Tom Watson was also kind enough to tweet this link about Inspector Cleggeau, our revered Deputy Prime Minister.  Wonderful stuff

I have breakfast each morning early at a caff near Battersea Bridge.  Sometimes there are builders sitting outside.  I’ve got to chatting with a few regulars. George Osborne was asking Sun readers to come up with ideas for cutting the deficit.  This, as you can imagine, went down well with men who are largely self employed and take life and work as it comes.  Their reaction was not what Osborne may have wished for… one guy – which had me coughing black coffee – said “We pay these F*****s to sort it… so they should farkin sort it!”.  He’s right.

Only tonight, David Cameron wrote directly to me (and others),  using his WebCameron database,  asking me if If I had any ideas. I do, as it happens, but being a capitalist anarcho-syndicalist who votes Labour I am open to negotiations.  Unfortunately, HMG is cutting back on  *consultancy* fees – such a bright and clever idea when the Civil Service appears to have needed external expertise for years and bunging peerages at members of the public doesn’t cut it anymore – so it is unlikely he will be back in touch.  I’ve sent him £100 I found in an old Monopoly set lurking in a cupboard – one of those orange ones.

If you haven’t seen these astonishing Swiss Army drummersplease watch. Truly astonishing.  HT @OldHolborn

As OH says… no wonder Swiss trains and watches run on time.

AND SO.. A TRIP TO SOME OF MY FAVOURITE LAW BLOGS!

John Bolch, a good friend and a very good family lawyer and blogger has an amusing (and interesting)  piece about Facebook

Block those smelly feet

The WHITE RABBIT is a lawyer, A BARRISTER WHO SPECIALISES IN BLOODSTAINS – but he rarely writes about LAW. He is now pre-occupied (as I am) with British born Octopus, PAUL

And then there is my friend Tim Kevan, who writes the BabyBarista blog. Tim has managed to get The Guardian to carry his blog – on very LIBERAL terms (What else with The Guardian) – after escaping from the Times PAYWALL of China.

Are Your Lawyers from Heaven or Hell? Asks Professor John Flood – who does write serious stuff – but also about the surreal.

I wasn’t going to mention any serious Law blogs – this being Friday and Rive Gauche day – but I am going to make an exception. If you have not read the blog by Obiter J – please give it a run.  Obiter J is a tireless commenter on many blogs, my own included (when I write sensibly).

Law and Lawyers

is a serious LAW blog and well worth reading.

Law bloggers who know me know me well enough to know that I can’t include them in this Rive Gauche – but I shall include their more recent analyses in Law reviews next week!  Mea culpa

And on that note…. I saw this on twitter today.  It is an exceptional summation of Ingerland. I am genuinely sorry – I forgot to bookmark who first put it up on twitter and for that I apologise so I cannot give a HT – but it comes from Spygun.com .
