MICHAEL Gove returned to the dancefloor last night in the latest instalment of Tory Conference Clips That Nobody Asked For.

Thankfully there was more context to Gove’s latest dancing than when he randomly showed up at an Aberdeen nightclub a few weeks back, but that didn’t make it any easier on the eyes.

In the video the Levelling Up Minister shows off his moves to a karaoke version of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody, alongside MP Tom Tugendhat.

Conservative MPs have provided all kinds of jaw-dropping and cringeworthy moments during this year’s conference in Manchester – here’s a few of the worst so far.

Therese Coffey’s karaoke

The Department of Work and Pensions Secretary appeared at conference karaoke last night singing “(I’ve Had) The Time of my Life”, on the same night as her department cut Universal Credit by £20 a week.

If anything sums up the Tories’ attitude to the lives of the most vulnerable people in the UK, that’s it …

Standing ovation for Priti Patel

The Home Secretary’s pledge to “turn back the boats” during her conference speech led to a standing ovation from delegates in one stomach-churning moment yesterday.

The National:

Patel used her speech to set out her government’s severe stance on asylum seekers and pledged to extend the sentences of people who come to the UK “illegally”. She also said how somebody arrives in the UK will now impact on their asylum claim, which appears to be in contravention of the 1951 UN Refugee Convention. And yet, applause and cheers – that’s where the UK currently is.

Confused Justice Secretary

This morning, Dominic Raab went on the broadcast rounds for the Government – and made one of the most incredible statements of the lengthy conference yet.

The National:

While discussing whether misogyny should be made a hate crime, Raab told BBC Breakfast: “Misogyny is of course absolutely wrong, whether it’s a man against a woman or a woman against a man …”

Someone please get this man a dictionary.

Lord Frost weighs in

Speaking yesterday at a Centre for Policy Studies event, unelected Brexit minister Lord Frost insisted that Brexit makes Scottish independence harder – despite the fact expert pollsters have said for years that it makes the prospect more likely, given Scots voted by a big majority to Remain in the EU.

The National:

We’d argue Brexit makes Scottish independence harder to deny, so perhaps Lord Frost just forgot the end of his sentence. Regardless, seeing this unelected peer who has caused so much damage with his Brexit deal tell Scotland about its own political situation was unpleasant viewing.

With Boris's speech due later today, we can guarantee there will be more painful moments to come yet ...
