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…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
