Michael Gove criticised for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe comment

Earlier this week the regime in Tehran seized on comments by the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, to justify the imprisonment of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

Now, Mr Gove may have made matters worse by saying he “didn’t know” why British mother had visited the country.

Meanwhile a memo has emerged showing Gove and Johnson plotting to strong-arm the prime minister into a hard Brexit.
