Michael Gove (yes, this is Rangers related!)

I'm sure some of you eagle eyed Rs noticed this.

Seems he is a supporter, still a bloody Tory though and he would never get my vote
but no bad thing for brand Rangers! :)

Excellent article in the Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/20 ... g-qpr-top/

By the way have any of you seen him at Loftus Road?

Yup seen him a few times and usually outside the ground or on the tube to Hammersmith and always with his son bending his ear with non stop who knows what? Don't think he has a season ticket as he seems to use different areas of the ground. last time I saw him was walking up the aisle past my seat in F Block.

Terrible for brand Rangers. I’d rather no one knew about this.

If he knifes Boris in the back again he's OK by me :lol:

I take it he would be the first QPR PM if he won it? Let's see: May: ?? Cameron: Aston Ham, Brown: Falkirk or Forfar or something, Blair: Pukecastle , Major: Chelski, Thatch: Liverpool, Jim: Portsmouth was it? Wilson: Uddersfield.

I've seen him quite a few times at LR too, and always with his kids.

The other embarrassment of an Rs supporter I occasionally see is Toby Young whose political views I find border on fascist.

Brown = Raith Rovers
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

Maybe he thinks that you are the "embarrassment" of a supporter.

If the Government cannot agree on a Brexit deal then I think its unlikely that we are going to agree on here about the merits of Gove. That isn't meant as a covert expression of support for him. I'd be unlikely to support any politician that wants us out of Europe but its good that he is an R and its good that we draw our support from all political sides !
Come on you Sooopa ........

I'm with you. Certainly not a Tory supporter but being dogmatic especially about our
support is a bit stupid.

You have an opinion on him,surely he is entitled to an opinion on you.

Of course he is, but my question was why he would think I'm an embarrassment.

A touching defence of the "loveable rogue" that Toby Young no doubt sees himself as, but I think a man who literally wrote the book on "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" has probably heard worse.
