Friday fun: politicians dancing (or not!)
You may want to look away...
Yes, for much of it. But maybe not all of it.
I tried to get this out today, but had network issues. Maybe I should rename it the Monday Maybot. Quite far the worst in my view. But Michael Gove is up there.
I had a bit of reaction to the short clip of the Duchy of Lancaster doing some sort of move like he was standing up and trying to extricate himself from a sleeping bag.
One of the most able students of A Level Politics I've ever taught, Courtney, suggested Michael Gove might not be 'real'. Someone impersonating Gove, I asked? No, that's not what she meant. So we'll leave it there.
So it made me think back to the long list in my memory of bad politician dancing.
A few of them are covered in a Guardian feature.
Click here to see Theresa May, Ed Balls, the current PM, and then the day is almost saved by Barack Obama. In my opinion, just coolness personified. How is it he just manages to hit the right note in almost every social situation? Is there any other political who has mastered their craft better in this regard?
Anyway, I'll add a few more that the Guardian omitted.
