    Went to university with this fella - as well as being a genius satirist, he's also one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Delighted for your success, Michael (Spicer, not Gove)

      @MyFaceBeHi although it must be difficult to satarise a government that satarises itself on a daily basis.

      yeah the real person in the back room was probably saying "right, make the voice more weird. The weirder it gets the more the press will talk about it and not starmer's pledge to resign or the lack of policies in the not-so-queens speech."

    How is it even possible to get so many classic quotes in a 2.13 video, that mean I have to keep pausing it for fear of missing one through uncontrollable laughter at the previous. Genius is a much over used word these days, but you sir, deserve the title... and more. Thank you! 🤣🤣

    Superb, one of your very best - the reaction to 'it's not an emergency budget' was amazing.

    Very good 😁 Gove's cultural references are 20 years out of date as he was married to a Daily Liar journalist as they are the only ones they are up-to-date with.
    I think The Now Show had Gove bang to rights as a malevolent ventriloquist's dummy.

    If you’d shown this clip of Gove to people before the days of the Johnson regime, they would’ve assumed it was a fake. Now we all readily accept that a senior cabinet minister went on the breakfast tv briefing round and did weird accents to ?offend more people? Make light of a huge cost of living crisis where more and more people are going without food or power? Is Gove bidding for some more film work?
    I can really only cope with him parsed by Michael Spicer. The need for a post-Gove shower is obvious.
