‘A couple of shandies,’ says the narrator. Michael Gove from the movie Footloose was caught on camera body popping at an Aberdeen nightclub.
MICHAEL GOVE was photographed dancing the night away with Scottish clubbers in his birthplace of Aberdeen.
On a night out in the Granite City, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster astounded Scottish revellers. On Sunday, images and video of the “merry” Michael, 54, went viral on social media.
The suit-wearing MP for Surrey Heath is seen throwing shapes far into the early hours of Saturday night in a video posted on Instagram by musician Emma Lament.
He raised his arms high to hard-hitting techno beats, his body exploding.
After enjoying “a fair few shandies” with punters at a neighboring pub, the Scottish-born Conservative frontbencher found himself at local nightclub Bohemia.
“Michael Gove arrived into O’Neills at around 1.15am, the pub was just about to close,” Ms Lament told the Daily Record.
“I’m almost certain he was alone.
“I overheard people say, ‘He’s a Tory MP.'” Others were Googling Michael Gove and asking, “Who is Michael Gove?”
“As soon as they got up there, people started taking pictures.
“The Tories aren’t particularly popular in Scotland, but he was treated with respect.
“It’s safe to say he’d had a few shandies by the time he got to O’Neill’s.”
Mr Gove, according to the singer, departed the nightclub around 2.30 a.m.
“He was having a great time, I don’t think he left the dancefloor the entire time I was there,” she continued.
“People were buying him drinks, but they were also saying that after racking up £100,000 in costs last year, he should be getting the rounds.”
But this isn’t the first time Mr Gove has been caught red-handed.
The Brexit-backing MP was joined by ex-Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls dancing to “Gangnam Style” on Channel 4’s The Last Leg.
A buddy of the former Vote Leave campaigner stated, “He loves Aberdeen and its nightlife.”
While the Cabinet Minister was born in Edinburgh, he spent much of his boyhood in Granite City, where he was reared by his adopted parents Ernest and Christine Gove.
