Angela Rayner – 2021 Comments on the Personal Conduct of Michael Gove

The comments made by Angela Rayner, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, on 29 June 2021.

Michael Gove has contradicted himself so many times it’s no surprise he won’t answer questions about his role in his friends being unlawfully awarded more than half a million pounds of taxpayers’ money.

Gove’s attitude smacks of a contempt for the truth and habitual dishonesty. If he is so sure he’s done nothing wrong he should publish all the correspondence and refer himself for an investigation so he can clear his name.

After the Matt Hancock scandal the stench of sleaze hanging around this government is growing stronger every day. The public need answers about what has gone on here, and there is clear evidence that Michael Gove has broken the Ministerial Code.
