Jenkin, a Conservative MP, asked Hislop whether he thought Gove, who campaigned for Britain to leave the EU, had anticipated his current position.
Hislop replied: “Judging from the look on his face on the morning of Brexit, he wasn’t.

Hislop said that he is not suggesting ACOBA should have refused Gove’s appointment, but that they should “look very, very closely at it”.
