Michael Gove was unimpressed this morning when Radio 5 Live’s Rachel Burden had the cheek to assume he agreed with his wife:

“It was interesting to read your wife’s column in the Daily Mail referring to Labour’s position on the North, she says Labour will unite with Sturgeon and take power; the North and then Scotland will leech off us until we die… do you agree with your wife on that one?”

“I’m a feminist and therefore I think that my wife’s views are her views not my views… I’m afraid this is an example of what’s become known as everyday sexism.”

He’s not that (chief) whipped…
