Gove’s bizarre and visibly unstable behaviour was highlighted by numerous Twitter users who accused the Tory Minister of either being “drunk” or “on drugs”.

One former bar worker said of Gove’s behaviour:

I’ve worked in a lot of bars, and I recognise that floppy wobble. He’s about three glasses past refusal of service, by the look of him.

Numerous Twitter users responded to Gove’s behaviour by calling for Parliament’s subsidised bar to be closed down and for MPs to be forced to undergo random drug tests.
