Q&A with Michael Gove

Michael Gove is determined to introduce a green strain into Conservatism, and the government has had some eye-catching wins with its environmental policies. But air pollution has not been addressed—and on the bigger subject of climate change how can Britain urge green reforms on much larger, dirtier, nations?

Prospect: Why is it, do you think, that your party has allowed people to think that conservation and Conservatism are two things that are opposed to each other?

Michael Gove: They should be closely aligned. But all political parties are coalitions, and all governments have different pressures, and at times we—like other parties— have allowed the necessary imperative for economic growth to appear to be more important than, or in conflict with, the duty of stewardship and environmental enhancement.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s August issue: Zoe Williams argues that the first thing we need to do if we are to remain in the EU is to tackle the reasons why so many wanted out—namely pay and conditions at home and the impact of unfettered capitalism. Prospect’s Alex Dean and Tom Clark interviewed former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg who says the liberal centre should keep the faith—there is another way to work closely with Europe, but the immigration question is central to finding that solution. Meanwhile, a group of writers including Wolfgang Münchau, Shashank Joshi and Owen Hatherley explain some of the pitfalls, prizes and things you hadn’t thought about when it comes to the UK’s relationship with the EU. Elsewhere in the issue: Former UK diplomat Tom Fletcher profiles the out-going UN human rights chief who is causing a stir by saying the things nobody else would dare. Steve Bloomfield asks what happened to Seymour Hersh—how did the legendary journalist come to echo the thoughts and ideas of Bashar al-Assad; and Phil Ball examines the crisis of male infertility asking: where has all the sperm gone?
