Michael Gove paves the way for a Cabinet comeback as he heaps praise on Theresa May – Telegraph.co.uk

Michael Gove has paved the way for a return to the Cabinet as he heaped praise on Theresa May and said he would “happily” serve in her Government if asked. 

It came as he denied stabbing former Vote Leave colleague Boris Johnson in the back after supporting his leadership bid then withdrawing and putting himself forward to be prime minister. 

Mr Gove said his decision was “not treachery”, adding: “I wouldn’t say I stabbed him in the back”. 

Speaking on the BBC’s World at One programme, Mr Gove, who was sacked as justice secretary following the Brexit vote, praised both Mrs May and Mr Johnson extensively.
