Michael Gove’s mum has spoken of her delight this morning after her son was described as somebody’s favourite, including her’s, for the first time in his life.

The news comes after the announcement that David Davis resigned as Brexit Secretary yesterday evening.

Mr Gove, who was picked last for every game in PE at school, is the top pick for the worst job in politics.

“Well obviously if I had to choose who to watch eat a shit sandwich Michael Gove would be my favourite.” Michael Gove’s father told The Rochdale Herald.

“He’s always been an insufferable little turd, he’ll probably fuck this up too but at least it’ll be the ruin of him.”
