At this stage in the political game Michael Gove’s future in the Conservative Party seems rather dismal and bleak. Having failed to secure himself as a shortlisted finalist for the Tory party’s ballot as the next prime minister, it seems he has lost his will to win and as such his supporters too. Having publicly denied that he duly wanted to be appointed as Prime Minister and then making a last-minute run for leadership, gave supporters and members the feeling of uncertainty in Gove’s abilities.
Gove’s implementation to scrapping of courts fees has been marginally criticized, as many duly believe that this has caused innocent individuals to plead guilty to avoid financial implications. This has in turn caused a stir among other MP’s as well current Prime Minister Theresa May, leading most to question whether or not Gove will in fact still be part of the Conservative Party leadership. Having been removed from the position of Justice Secretary by PM Theresa May in July 2016, leaves Gove on the back foot and with an uncertain future, odds are stacked against him quite heavily if social media is anything to go by stating that he will or rather should resign from the Conservative party by the end of 2016.
