Bad sign for BoJo when Gove stabs you in the front
Startling everyone who was watching for the glint of knives in the shadows, Michael Gove has asked the Prime Minister to resign directly.
While the political world was waiting on Gove being offered a cushy Cabinet position and then turning on Johnson at the next opportunity, he has instead communicated his belief and desired outcome in a forthcoming manner.
"That really set Bojo on full tilt", said a No.10 insider. "When the master of betrayal pleads with you to just step aside, you have to wonder what the hell you're doing,"
Gove was unavailable for comment as after the meeting he transformed into several bats and flew out the window.
