The Independent published this video item, entitled “Revealed: Michael Gove’s sexist, racist and homophobic speeches” – below is their description.

Michael Gove made crude sexual comments, joked about paedophilia within top levels of government and used a racist slur in a series of remarks made in university debates, The Independent can reveal.

In apparent attempts at humour, Mr Gove referred to people colonised by the British as “fuzzy wuzzies”, accused former Tory minister Sir Leon Brittan of being a paedophile, and made a string of sexual jokes at the expense of Conservative minister Lucy Frazer, in speeches at the Cambridge Union.
