In March 2014, Sarah Vine and her husband’s decision to send their daughter to Grey Coat Hospital comprehensive school in Westminster made Michael Gove the first Conservative Party education secretary to have chosen the state over the private sector for their child’s secondary schooling.
In her Daily Mail column, Vine celebrated the “miracle” of state education and criticized private education, saying “Its agenda is a fundamentally selective one, based not only on the ability to pay but also on pupil potential. And it is also, let’s face it, about snobbery”.
Sarah Vine added that her decision to send her daughter to a state secondary school was motivated by a desire for her child to receive a broad education: “that you shouldn’t judge people by their clothes, or where they live, but by who they really are. That, in my view, is the miracle of our state education system. Like the NHS, it welcomes all-comers. The state doesn’t care where its pupils come from; all that matters is where they’re heading.”
In November 2014, she wrote a column criticizing food writer and activist Jack Monroe for mentioning the death of David Cameron’s son in 2009 in one of a series of tweets criticizing Cameron.
Sarah Vine went on to question Monroe’s decision to have a child herself, insinuating that her choice led to her own poverty. Monroe condemned the article as ‘homophobic, transphobic, deadnaming, ignorant, and generally ghastly lies’.
During the 2015 United Kingdom general election, Vine used her column to criticize Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, his wife and their ‘forlorn little kitchen’. In the same column, she reported that her own kitchen was ’10 years old’ and that the ‘hob has many knobs missing’. Private Eye magazine questioned this as it commented that £7,000 had been spent on the kitchen as part of her husband Michael Gove’s MP expenses. Vine suggested that this was a ‘twisted interpretation’.
