The Matter of Private and State-Owned Schools

In March 2014, Vine and her husband made a combined decision to send their daughter to Grey Coat Hospital comprehensive school in Westminster. This made Vine’s husband Michael Gove the first Conservative Party education secretary for having his child be chosen to study at the state over the choice of the private school. Then in her Daily Mail column, Vine celebrated the “miracle” of state education and talked about the educational status of the private schools with critical judgments. She said words like “let’s face it, about snobbery”. In her column, she also added her decision to send her daughter to the state secondary school instead of private sector schools to receive a broad education.

Criticism Over the Matter of Kitchen

During general elections in the United Kingdom in 2015, Vine used her column to criticize Ed Miliband, the Labor leader Party, his wife, and their ‘forlorn little kitchen’. She reported that her own kitchen is around 10 years old and stated that the “hob has many knobs missing”. On the other hand, Private Eye magazine questioned the criticism of Vine and commented on the prize that she reported in the column- £7,000. She stated that she had to spend this much amount as part of her husband Michael Gove’s MP expenses. After the magazine questioned Vine’s attitude, Vine suggested that it was a “twisted interpretation”.
