Campaigners regret Michael Gove decision to Brexit’s his beard
August 2016 October 2016
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it regrets the decision of former Minister Michael Gove to Brexit his beard, which he appeared in public with during the summer after pulling out of the race to be Tory leader.
Gove gave an interview to the Radio 4’s World at One on Tuesday and a picture of him in the studio shows him as clearly clean shaven.
Gove came a poor third in the Beard of Autumn poll last week finishing well behind Nick Dwyer designer for craft North London brewer Beavertown and England football manager Gareth Southgate.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Gove’s beard attracted a lot of media attention and it might have been a sign of him launching a new political image. Sadly he has reverted to the clean shaven man in a suit style favoured by so many mainstream male politicians.
