Pass the Duchy: Beatrice Gove TikToks Coronavirus Weed Woes

When Michael Gove entered self-isolation yesterday he assured us he himself did not have the symptoms, though a family member had come down with some signs of Coronavirus. Sarah Vine took it upon herself to spill the family beans yesterday in her column, specifying that her daughter is the one who has put her father out of circulation. The joys of parenthood…

“In my own case, for example, our daughter Beatrice came down with a high fever and assorted Covid-19 symptoms on Sunday. She seems perfectly fine now (oh, blissful youth), but, as a precaution, the rest of us are now self-isolating, including my husband. It’s unlikely, in my view, that he will have caught it from her — being a typical teenager, she spends most of her time in voluntary self-isolation in her bedroom.”

Vine’s confession will have come as no surprise to the 18,000 TikTok followers of Gove and Vine’s daughter, who on Monday uploaded a video confessing “my family wont even talk to me now bc i have all the corona symptoms” along with another video captioned Sidenote I have corona like I’m not even capping”. Bea’s greatest Coronavirus concern? “Cant even smoke my ouid bc my cough is so bayd”

Her very public TikTok videos – which have almost hit 830,000 video likes from her 511 uploads – include 17-year-old Bea boasting of her love of cannabis weed; smoking a blunt with a friend out of her bedroom window and accidentally calling her dealer “daddy”.. She must be annoyed by the current market’s corona-induced high prices…

Bea may find that after lockdown ends inflated weed prices means that ‘3 years of birthday money’ won’t be enough for an ounce…

UPDATE 15.40 : The TikTok account – which we did not identify above – is now set to private.

Swinson: I Inhaled and I Liked It

For once a politician says they enjoyed their drug experiences. Sometimes when politicians talk about historic – and it always historic – drug experiences they make it out it was some kind of terrible ordeal. Which kind of begs the question why did they do it? In truth the reason millionaire rock stars do sex and drugs is because they like it and it is pleasurable. Drug prohibitionists never talk about the millions of people who enjoy doing drugs on the weekend and go to work on Monday without harming anyone else. The problems only come when people overdo it and become addicted.

The LibDems’ manifesto includes a commitment to legalise cannabis for personal consumption, with licensed and quality controlled supplies bringing an end to the carnage on the streets from criminal gangs fighting turf wars for the profits of a contraband commodity in high demand. Police forces have effectively already stopped prosecuting cannabis consumers, with many senior police officers more or less openly advocating legalisation. Labour are wary of supporting liberalisation because they fear it will be an attack line from the Tories. About time the Tories stopped doing drugs in private and criminalising the public for the same…

Hard Blow from Gove

Michael Gove had to try something different to give his campaign a bump with the dust still yet to settle from his torrid weekend and he certainly managed the most energetic campaign launch of all the candidates so far. The line he decided to take this time was going hard on Big B…

Gove stands out among the Tory leadership field for being able to both set out detailed policies and not be boring doing so and there was plenty that will have appealed including his social care insurance and veterans policies. Brexit is still his Achilles heel – on policy at least – and Gove saying that he would be prepared to delay Brexit “however long it takes to get a deal over the line” more or less sinks his chances of winning over Brexiteers in any significant numbers. His lines on Brexit aren’t red…

His decision to launch a range of personal attacks on Boris looks like a calculated deadcat gambit to try to shift the media narrative off his personal peccadillos onto internecine Brexiteer warfare and personality clashes, judging from the number of hits he took from journalists afterwards over it he still hasn’t managed to blow away the issue just yet. Attacking the candidate most people expect to emerge as the eventual winner is not necessarily the best way of getting wavering Tory MPs on board either…
