Michael Gove’s Ditchley lecture on innovation and risk taking – given to an ageing, very largely white and besuited audience

I have read Micheal Gove's speech on the future of government, delivered last night as the Ditchley Lecture.

The speech was all about supposedly radicalising government, adding to the diversity of its delivery and the broadness of its thinking. In the context I think this picture from the Ditchley web site interesting:

That's an ageing, very large white and be-suited audience. And this is the audience he chose to speak to radicalism and supposed diversity to? Who is he kidding?
