Michael Gove has admitted taking even more drugs, now it is smoking weed.
He has already admitted he took cocaine: “I took drugs on several occasions at social events more than 20 years ago,” he told the Daily Mail. “At the time I was a young journalist. It was a mistake. I look back and I think, I wish I hadn’t done that.”
During his time at Oxford University he was also a naughty boy.
Mr Gove told a Times Radio podcast: “Yes, I did”, saying they were a “feature of the student experience for a lot of people”.
Gove said: “Without wanting to get too much into the policy of it, I think that the type of cannabis, marijuana that is available now will often have a far higher THC content a far higher capacity to cause harm.”
Now in an opinion piece in the i by Eliot Wilson claims the new and improved Michael Gove 2.0 will emerge victorious, he writes: “Nevertheless, when the dust settles, I think he will be seen as one of the most important figures of the Conservative period in government.”
Harsh or fair?

The proposed facility at Hownsgill Industrial Park in Consett had faced an appeal following Durham County Council’s refusal.
