WHILE Tory Leaver Michael Gove was wheeling out the champagne, his brother-in-law was far from thrilled.

Ben Vine – brother of Gove’s Daily Mail columnist wife Sarah – lives in Madrid and fears for his future.

Despite having a Spanish wife, the photographer fears he will no longer be able to work in Spain.

“I always took it for granted that I could just live and work here, but that may no longer be the case,” he said.

He added his ‘biggest worry’ was ‘being separated from my nine-year-old son’.
Vine, who was raised with his sister in Italy, feels ‘thoroughly European’.

  1. Gove is odious, but Mr Vine’s comments are just ridiculous. How on earth can he be “separated from my nine-year-old son?” Perhaps he can post here and tell us all?

  2. Better yet, couldn’t the OP just add “Gove” to its list of unpublishable words, and have the computer replace it with “expletive deleted” (or just ****) whenever it occurs. I’d like to do the same with “Vine”, but we don’t want to lose all those good winery reviews.
