Michael Gove uses Manchester United analogy for tonight's Brexit vote

Environment Secretary Michael Gove used a sports analogy to say Theresa May could win the crucial Brexit vote in Parliament tonight.

Referring to Manchester United's unexpected 3-1 win over Paris Saint Germain last week, he told the Today programme: "Don't preempt the judgement of the House of Commons... before Manchester United played PSG, at that point you could've said they hadn't actually won, but they did."
