Michael Gove V Sarah Vine

It is puzzling especially today when Michael Gove told us lockdown could continue beyond December 2nd a gut blow when lockdown does not start until next week, yet his wife has an article printed backing us in our despair. How does this marry do you think. Should Sarah back her man or be the voice of dissent, or is it all a game??

Just to clarify Sarah Vine is Michael Gove`s wife. Interesting household.

Hi Sarah!

She’s always been clear her husband and her are seperate entities who can hold seperate views. I think that’s fair snd correct. She doesn’t need to pretend she has no opinion of her own.

And he clearly said in the interview it was unlikely to happen that lockdown would be extended further but if we were as we are today it would have to be, because he was asked the question.

He can’t respond and say no, no, if we are in the same place or worse we wouldn’t do it again, cos of crimbo you know.

Clearly if lock down doesn’t suppress it then we have to extend. However as he says, that’s highly unlikely

But Sarah is her own person. She’s entitled to her own opinions. It’s not the 1950s and she needs to back her man like some good little wife. Nor do I think it’s a game or her being dissenting. Simply she’s an adult with her own opinions.

More interesting is that their daughter is all over social media, openly slagging off her father at every opportunity.
Can't imagine Sunday lunch at their house!

Fisticuffs you mean? I'd back Vine but of course you can never trust Gove not to do some dodgy illegal punch below the belt.

Who's their daughter beachyhead?

@beachyhead I would like to see this SM account.

I'm not sure how to express how much the Gove/Vine team make my teeth itch. They are wrong about everything, all the time, imo - and even if they disagree they will still both be wrong grin

It works by looks of it. Look at Kellyanne Conway and her husband George. A far bigger gulf.

PegasusReturns Sun 01-Nov-20 15:08:07

There would be nothing worse than a journalist who blindly “backed her man”.

I’m sure they disagree on lots but it’s also a huge game.

Really that is so funny, but I suspect my three might disagree with their dad who is old school whereas I am more live and let live.

I like Sarah Vine and I guess her husband must have some redeeming points that have escaped me. The tight scot routine on tv last night was amusing on spitting image.

I read an article of Sarah's where she said something along the lines of willing to risk dying younger of covid. Makes sense now.

I think she is italian maybe her mind set is a little different from the brit one.

It’s not a source of arguments if you hold different views, dh and I are poles apart on abortion laws, politics, & neither tries to change the other’s mind on the subject.

Topseyt Sun 01-Nov-20 15:53:41

She is allowed to have and express her own opinion, which doesn't have to match that of her arsehole husband.

I guess that mealtimes in their house could be interesting.

I quite like the article, though I am not actually a fan of the Fail.

Bluntness100 Sun 01-Nov-20 15:54:20

I quite like Sarah vine too. I can’t for the life of me work out what she sees in Michael gove. And genuinely think he’s punching there.

She comes across as intelligent and forthright, and him a bit wet mouthed and sneaky. I suspect she wears the trousers in that relationship.

However that statement she wrote when he turned against Boris during brexit about how they were holding the fate of millions in their hands or whatever was really disturbing she thought that noth she and he were that powerful. I guess they both got a fright and learned a lesson though after that mess though.

Foxyloxy1plus1 Sun 01-Nov-20 16:13:38

There is nothing redeeming about Michael Gove. Not a single thing.

AdoraBell Sun 01-Nov-20 16:17:14

I don’t agree with everything that DH agrees with. Both of us are individual people, we both have opinions. Sarah Vine can her views.

Agree, there is nothing warm about him. I suspect he’s likely very intelligent, and I also suspect he is trying to do what in his opinion is for the best, but he is simply not someone you can warm too. Too officious I think.

I’d be very surprised if he was behind the leak, I would hope they got enough of a fright the last time with the brexit thing to stay out of the spotlight for the wrong reasons. You never know though. But I think he’s just too officious to do it. Sarah I could imagine doing it though but don’t think she’d risk his career like that.

I do hope they find out who it was. It was ridiculous and unnecessary. However it could have been someone told someone who told someone. Who leaked it.

Kellyanne Conway is a devoted Trump spokesperson, she of the 'alternative facts' comment. George is a Republican but implacably opposed to Trump, involved in the Lincoln Project working to get him out. Dinner must be interesting round theirs.

beachyhead Sun 01-Nov-20 20:32:44

Their daughter is Bea Gove, very busy on TikTok.....

She is just Piers Morgans' puppet
Her articles about Meghan Markle were vile and racist

I find that quite an unusual take on SV. I see them as perfectly matched. I've always assumed there was an element of convenience around them.
