‘Don’t be surprised if you see Michael Gove dancing here’: Sadiq Khan, 50, mocked the clubbing antics of a middle-aged minister as he manned the decks at a Labor conference party – and even Keir Starmer took off his tie!

  • Mayor of London was guest of honor on Jamaican night at Labor conference
  • Poked fun at Mr Gove, 54, who was spotted in an Aberdeen nightspot last month
  • Khan told event: ‘Don’t be surprised if you see Michael Gove dancing here’










Sadiq Khan made fun of Tory minister Michael Gove last night about his middle-aged clubbing gang – when he played at a Labor conference party.

The London mayor, 50, was among those who let their hair down after a tumultuous start to the annual gathering in Brighton.

He was the guest of honor at a Jamaican night at the Prizm club hosted by former shadow equality minister Dawn Butler.

And he used his time at the microphone to poke fun at Mr Gove, 54, Levellen’s new minister, after he was spotted throwing shapes at an Aberdeen nightlife last month.

Mr Khan told the packed event: “The best place in Brighton this conference week is Dawn Butler’s Jamaica party.

“I have to tell you that I saw Michael Gove come to Brighton because Michael Gove likes to dance.

“So don’t be surprised if you see Michael Gove here.”

Ms. Butler later tweeted that she went to bed around 7am after the lively party, tweeting, “Thank you to everyone who came and raved, enjoyed and just went with the vibes.”

Mr Khan was not the only top Labor figure to take some time out yesterday to relax and have fun. Even party leader Sir Keir found time to take off his tie and have a drink as he watched his beloved Arsenal beat Spurs 3-1 in the North London Derby.

He continued his half-dressed look today as he took a walk in Brighton.

Gove was spotted in Aberdeen over the party weekend in August in videos posted on social media.

The MP, who recently announced his divorce from Daily Mail columnist Sarah Vine, was seen throwing shapes after visiting an O’Neill’s pub in the Granite City – where he grew up.

He later went upstairs to the Bohemia nightclub where he was filmed dancing to techno after allegedly trying to evade the £5 entrance fee by telling door staff that he was the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster – a claim that he later denied.

Musician Emma Lament, who posted the videos to Instagram on Sunday, wrote in the captions that the brand-new single “gave Gove the big lick” while thumping techno music.

In the videos, Gove, dressed in a suit without a tie, can be seen jumping, taking two steps and waving his arms to the music.

Khan today tried to act as a peacemaker between Andy Burnham and Keir Starmer, as he insisted the Mayor of Greater Manchester support the Labor leader.

Burnham accused Sir Keir of sidelining Labor mayors at the party’s annual conference in Brighton yesterday.

He questioned whether the party is “serious to reclaim the north of England” after claiming that high-ranking elected politicians had not been given the chance to make major televised speeches in the conference hall.

But Mr Khan intervened this morning to insist that ‘Andy is one who supports the leader’.

The mayor of London said Sir Keir is in talks with the elected mayors of Labor to “listen to our views because we are a good example of Labor in power”.

The comments from Mr Burnham, who has been widely tipped as a possible successor to Sir Keir, threatened to spark a major internal Labor feud.
