Spare a thought for Michael Gove. While his fellow Brexiteer Boris Johnson’s leadership campaign came to an abrupt end thanks to Gove challenging him, in the end it was the former mayor who found himself in the Cabinet and Gove who ended up on the backbench.
Now it seems that Boris has had the last laugh once again. The latest register of interests shows Gove is earning £150,000 a year for his Times column. In comparison, Johnson’s Telegraph column earned him £247,000 a year.
Well, at least Gove has a book on the way to help make ends meet.
