Michael Spicer was in the Room Next Door to THAT Michael Gove interview
A couple of days ago – at the time of writing – the government sent Michael Gove onto the media circuit to field questions about Partygate and the cost-of-living crisis, amongst other things.
It might not have been the best idea.
Dan Walker: The PM said there would be more help in the coming days… the Treasury said no… Ed Davey said that shows the govt is chaotic & don't have a plan.. what's the truth

Twitter’s collective facepalm was visible from space and resulted in comments like these.
One of the saddest things about that Michael Gove interview is that it’s put me off making funny voices for the rest of my life .. and I quite liked making funny voices 😳.

However, his public humiliation wasn’t really complete until Michael Spicer turned the car crash interview into comedy gold.
The only meeting that you go to is the annual meeting of men who most resemble a toxic shaven owl.
Michael also shared the sketch on Twitter, where it got a far better reception than Gove’s one-man Rory Bremner tribute.
Once again fantastic from Michael Spicer, the room next door is brilliant https://t.co/jZfEt9srFp

That interview was so bad it’s almost as if he was auditioning just for you. ‘Coo-eeeee, Michael, over here… clockwork turd ready for hair and make-up’! Howling 🤣

You slipped him a bung, didn't you.
The moment Gove did this I said :"I bet bloody Spicer put him up to it"

Michael – Spicer, not Gove – will be appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, so if you’re quick you can grab tickets to see him here.
