Competition Time

I have inadvertently purchased two copies of Linden Peach's excellent The Fiction of Emyr Humphreys: Contemporary Critical Perspectives (University of Wales Press, 2011), at a cost of £20 a go. I can't express how brilliant Humphreys' work is: he and Kate Roberts deserve Nobel Prizes. Try Humphrey's A Toy Epic, Outside the House of Baal or Old People Are A Problem for starters amongst his English-language work.

One copy will be awarded to whoever completes this sentence most amusingly:

My favourite thing about Michael Gove is… 

My decision is final, employees of Michael Gove are welcome to enter the competition.

"My favourite thing about Michael Gove is..."

My favourite thing about Michael Gove is that come the revolution I will have somewhere to keep my pike.

My favourite thing about Michael Gove is that his supereme effort to look like a cross between Basil Fawlty & Robert Redford compels children to hate him. What a man.
