It hasn't been the best of weeks for Michael Gove , but, should it all become too much for the Education Secretary, he can always try his luck in TV again. TV? That's right, Gove was a regular alongside the comedian David Baddiel and Tracey MacLeod in the short-lived Channel 4 series A Stab in the Dark (think of it as a poor man's Brass Eye).
The show was so poorly received that Channel 4 executives reportedly went around wearing badges that read "I had nothing to do with A Stab in the Dark".
A friend has unearthed the only publicly available footage from the programme. Gove makes his appearance around the 6:30 mark. His interview with an "armed robber" is perhaps most notable for not containing a single decent gag.
