He told the BBC yesterday that: “I am deeply saddened that the EU now seem to be refusing to negotiate with the UK”.

Gove insisted that PM Boris Johnson “wants to negotiate a good deal” whilst pointing out that the “old deal has failed to pass the House of Commons three times now”.

Interestingly, Gove also said that the government were only looking to “change the Withdrawal Agreement” rather than scrap it, but did once again repeat the line that “we are leaving on October 31st deal or No Deal”.
