MICHEAL Gove has told the BBC that he has ‘profound regret’ over his Cocaine taking past following reports in Britain’s newspapers.
The Tory MP and potential next Prime Minister told The Andrew Marr Show that he “deeply regretted” taking the Class A Drug in the 1990s as a journalist.
He was accused of hosting a cocaine-fuelled party just hours after writing a story about ‘middle-class cocaine users’ in the late 1990s.
He told the BBC that using Coke was a “mistake” and added: “I look back and think ‘I wish I hadn’t done that.”
Mr Gove feels that his past mistakes should be held against him.
Gove also said he would scrap VAT if he became PM added that he would replace it with a “lower, simpler” sales tax.
The Tory MP told the Sunday Telegraph that he would take a “pro-business economic plan” to take on Corbyn’s “Marxist message”.
“It would mean reducing the regulations that hold a business back, cutting and reforming taxes – such as business rates – which in turn put pressure on small businesses and undermine our high streets, using the opportunity of life outside the EU to look to replace VAT with a lower, simpler, sales tax,” he wrote
