Tory leadership candidate says he took the drug as a young journalist, adding ‘it was a mistake’
Michael Gove has admitted to taking cocaine, joining fellow Tory leadership contenders in confessing to drug use.
“I took drugs on several occasions at social events more than 20 years ago,” he told the Daily Mail. “At the time I was a young journalist. It was a mistake. I look back and I think, I wish I hadn’t done that.”
