Michael Gove has levelled up his own building on the taxpayers’ expense, reports The Guardian.
He has been taking his smoking breaks in a special hut built for him on the roof of his departmental office, after he was stalked by a terrorist and heckled in the street.
Weeks after taking up the levelling up secretary role in 2021, he was heckled by anti-lockdown protesters who shouted obscenities at him as he walked alone in Westminster towards his office.
People surrounded him and hurled insults including “absolute w*nker” and “f*cking idiot”.
Michael Gove, 55, signalled his support for banning young people from smoking last year.
The levelling up secretary told Times Radio that he was “open-minded” about stopping everyone below a certain age from ever buying cigarettes.
“We do need to take steps to improve public health,” Gove said. “I do think that enlightened public health measures which are backed by strong scientific evidence, which follow the lead of the doctors, the clinicians – we should look seriously at them.”
Maybe for a different use?
