Michael Gove interviews an armed robber

February 11, 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:

    What a slimy, shifty and dishonest-looking piece of work. And the armed robber ain’t much better! Eeek.

  • JC

    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?

    Labour accuse Maude of “politically inspired civil service bashing”

    Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude has been accused of causing a crisis in Whitehall morale through “routine, politically inspired civil service bashing” by his Labour counterpart Michael Dugher.

Speaking to the national trade union committee today, Dugher said that Kerslake’s departure comes due to Tory ministers fomenting a poor working relationship, say they had: “made […]

    Latest Ashcroft marginal polling shows UKIP could win top Labour target seats

    Lord Ashcroft has released his latest polling of marginal Conservative-held seats where Labour are in second place – in other words, Labour’s top target seats. He last polled these fourteen seats in late May, and the results suggested that Labour would win thirteen of them. The latest fieldwork, however, shows a greater swing to UKIP, and not just from the Tories: they’re taking plenty of Labour votes too. Labour are now on course to win just eleven of the seats, with […]

    No child should be too hungry to learn

    Universal healthy free school meals is a policy that has been pioneered by Labour and by Labour councils in Southwark, Hull, Newham, Islington and Durham. At the National Policy Forum (NPF) over the weekend, Labour’s policy for the General Election was thrashed out and during this a commitment was made to finding ways to extend this cross cutting policy. The consensus wording makes Labour’s current record and future ambitions on free school meals clear. Just over a year ago, the […]

    Cameron could be as bad as Putin, says former Cabinet minister

    David Cameron risks comparisons with Russian President Vladimir Putin if he goes ahead with plans to allow Parliament to veto rulings by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), according to former Attorney General Dominic Grieve. According to The Times (£), Cameron is reportedly planning to make the proposal a centrepiece of his Autumn conference speech, in an effort to win over Tory backbenchers and UKIP voters. Grieve has had a long-term opposition to the idea, with many suggesting it is […]

    Something amazing has happened to the Labour Party

    Something amazing has happened to the Labour Party and we have all grown so accustomed to it already that we take it for granted and don’t even comment about it. The amazing occurrence is the sustained achievement of party unity, not just for a season or a year but for an entire parliamentary term. This was graphically illustrated over the last few days. First we had the National Policy Forum. A series of great battles were anticipated over key policies […]
