Michael Gove Did A Selfie.. Five Months After Everyone Else

Oh Michael Gove. Will you ever be cool, on trend, down with the kidz?

Not content with getting quirky glasses, the education secretary posed with a couple of students while filming with BBC School Reports, only about five months after everyone else.

It's not quite on the scale of the David Cameron - Helle Thorning-Schmidt - Barack Obama sandwich with a moody Michelle served on the side, nor is it on the scale of David Cameron's "on-the-phone-to-Obama" number, which was parodied by the great Patrick Stewart, among others.

Nick Clegg's attempt was quite frankly just crap, and was immediately consigned to a dusty corner of the internet, but only time will tell as to whether Gove's has staying power.
