Gove: I Am Not at War With May

Michael Gove was in a conciliatory mood this morning after receiving an ear-bashing from the PM over his very public falling out with Theresa May. Doorstepped and asked if he is at war with the Home Secretary, he said:

“Certainly not, Theresa May is doing a fantastic job. There’s a lot going on. No, absolutely not. She’s doing a very fine job.”

The dispute is splashed across the papers this morning. The Guardian reports that Dave rounded on the Education Secretary in a meeting at No. 10 yesterday when he admitted being the source for the Times story earlier this week. May’s retaliation came after she got wind of Gove’s lunch with the editor. The Mail takes a look at the relationship between May’s SpAd, Fiona Cunningham, and the Home Office spook who Gove has criticised, Charles Farr. Ben Brogan reports Cunningham came close to being fired for tweeting out May’s letter to Gove yesterday. It’s all smiles from Gove this morning…

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
