Michael Gove interviews an armed robber

11th February, 2013 5:04 pm

There’s been plenty of attention for the Education Secretary of late, so we thought it might be time to unearth this somewhat bizarre interview that Gove conducted as part of a 1992 show called “A stab in the dark”, which also starred David Baddiel.

We post the interview without comment – other than to apologise for the slight gap between the audio and video:

    And Ed Milliband was in favour of scrapping the 10p tax rate a few years ago. I suppose we’re all hypocrites now, especially if we can be shown to be so with historic quotes.

    Does anyone have the clip from that series, where Gove argues that children are a lifestyle choice and that child benefit should be abolished?

    I understand John Woodcock’s intervention – but we should be wary of this tone entering the debate

    I am not quite sure where to begin with John Woodcock MP’s intervention in the leadership debate.

I understand the motive […]
