Gove apologises for Welsh mistake

Gove apologises for Welsh mistake

The Education Secretary has made a tongue-in-cheek apology to the Speaker after he was picked up for a possibly offensive use of language. Michael Gove admitted to the Commons today he had "welched" on a deal to visit Stoke, a turn of phrase that no-one objected to. Except the Speaker. After Mr Gove's answer he suggested that he should have said 'reneged'. The Ed Sec than apologised, saying he "would not want to be thought of as a Cymru-phobe," especially as he is "married to a Welsh girl". Mr Speaker then thanked him and praised his pronounciation. Luckily for Mr Gove no Plaid Cymru members were in the chamber at the time.
