The excitement must have gone to his head – or he was courting the younger voters in case there’s a general election. These five people weren’t sure what they were seeing.
Is Gove high, drunk or short circuiting? https://t.co/sPxD5lOH9M

The absolute state of Gove, acting the tough guy, saying "ain't" all the time, and doing sassy hand gestures. I think I just cringed my entire body inside out, so I'm off to the hospital. https://t.co/fNEnCXvr0G

Clever tweeter, Elspeth Wallace noticed something crucial.
This man read English at Oxford. So I'm just saying, if he says there 'ain't gonna be no second referendum', then he must mean there's definitely going to be a second referendum. I look forward to voting to stay in the EU. https://t.co/TPAB3oL7CS
