A bespectacled intellectual with a low-key public image, Michael Gove emerged as an unlikely force behind the Brexit campaign and a Machiavellian political player after rebelling against his former friend and ally, Prime Minister David Cameron.In a statement outlining his reasons for breaking with Cameron, who instead led efforts for Britain to stay in the EU, the soft-spoken Gove said it had been the "most difficult decision of my political life". Gove and Cameron met when they were both young men and rising through Conservative Party ranks.Gove performed his second act of betrayal Thursday when he announced a surprise bid to succeed Cameron, undermining the chances of former London mayor and fellow Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson.
