Gove: I'd Vote to Leave E.U.

Michael Gove has really caused a stir this morning. He told the BBC's Andrew Marr show that if there was a vote today he would decide to leave.

Gove said: "Life outside the EU would be perfectly tolerable."

But with up to 100 MPs including Cabinet Minister Owen Paterson likely to oppose or abstain next week on a House of Commons motion to call for Britain to leave the EU, it's sure to cause a stir.

His comments come on the same day that Nadine Dorries tells today's Sun that David Cameron should ditch Nick Clegg and instead forge an alliance with UKIP and that a Survation Survey shows that at least eight Tory seats including the one held by Brandon Lewis and Mark Simmonds are at risk to UKIP at the next General Election.
