|Our future Prime Minister|
Gove was born in Edinburgh; at four months old, he was adopted by a Labour-supporting family in Aberdeen, where he was brought up. His adoptive father ran a fish processing business; his adoptive mother was a lab assistant at the University of Aberdeen before working at the Aberdeen School for the Deaf.
In Aberdeen he was educated at a state school, and later attended the independent Robert Gordon's College, to which he had won a scholarship. In October 2012, Gove wrote an apology letter to his former French teacher for misbehaving in class.
From 1985 to 1988 he studied English at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, where he served as President of the Oxford Union. He was awarded a 2:1-degree.
Gove being Prime Ministerial.
Gove is a scholarship boy and arguably Scottish. This will be useful in dealing with them and keeping Scotland part of the Union.
He really would be the leader of National Unity.
Stand aside, Boris, if you know what's good for you, or at least insist that he stand.
People are sick of unprincipled Etonians.
You also hesitated before you decided to support leave. Why did you do that? This means you were calculating the odds of leave winning, not because you wondered if leaving was the right thing to do.
Very clever of Gove to be displaying such modesty and restraint as regards the leadership election. This will make the clamour for him to stand all the greater.
