Michael Gove: wily campaigner who outfoxed his friends

Michael Gove is one of two Brexit campaigners battling to be interior minister Theresa May's opponent to be Britain's next prime ministerA bespectacled intellectual with a low-key public image, Michael Gove emerged as an unlikely force behind the Brexit campaign and a wily political player after rebelling against his former friend and ally, Prime Minister David Cameron. In a statement outlining his reasons for going against Cameron, who led efforts for Britain to stay in the EU, the soft-spoken Gove said it had been the “most difficult decision of my political life”. Gove was godfather to Cameron’s late son Ivan, who was born severely disabled, and their wives were close friends before the current political drama.
