Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Michael Gove likens Boris Johnson betrayal in 2016 as ‘bomb going off in my hands'” – below is their description.

The current Housing Secretary stunned Westminster five years ago when he announced a leadership bid to replace David Cameron while running Boris Johnson’s campaign to enter No10. The two men had worked side-by-side on the Vote Leave campaign that helped win the EU referendum for Brexiteers and was the high watermark in a personal rivalry between the two men going back to their university days. And today, with the benefit of hindsight Mr Gove admitted it had been ‘political suicide’ to run against the current PM.
