Michael Gove: sexist, racist, homophobic and divisive – from his own lips

Michael Gove: One wonders how Chelsea FC and its fans feel about having this racist, sexist, homophobic hater of the North as a fellow supporter.

It shouldn’t be a surprise. After all, he did think rape was funny.

Michael Gove apologised for his comments about Harvey Weinstein’s bedroom…

… but it turns out he has been making similar comments in public since at least 1987, according to The Independent.

The newspaper has listed sexist, racist and homophobic comments from 1987 and 1993 – all of which should have disqualified him from ever being considered a suitable candidate for a Parliamentary seat.

He was elected into Parliament in 2005. Presumably some Tory sponsor thought he had lived down his words after 12 years. Little did they know what would happen 12 years later… or, indeed, now.

And what has happened now?

Well, we’ve found out what he said all those years ago. Probably the most offensive part – to the most people – is the classist statements (below):

Yes – it’s worse than the sexism and racism because the North will hate being pigeonholed so offensively and the South will hate being assumed to hate the North.

At the very least, it’s not good for sales.

The real question about this scandal is what Boris Johnson will do about it.

Gove is currently Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, which doesn’t mean a lot. But he’s tipped to become either Foreign or Home Secretary in a mooted Cabinet reshuffle.

If Johnson goes through with the alleged plan to give Gove a more high-profile job, after these revelations came to light, he’ll upset millions of people…

… and show that he couldn’t care less about the feelings of the “happy” South (ha ha) or the “cruel, dirty, toothless” North. Electoral suicide.
