Our 11 favourite reactions to Sarah Vine’s callous coronavirus comment
Daily Mail columnist, Sarah Vine, who also happens to be married to Michael Gove, caused a huge backlash on Twitter, with this callous remark.
Poet and radio presenter, Michael Rosen, who has only recently left hospital after being seriously ill with Covid-19, pointed out the big problem with the sentiment.
That’s just your life. One life. We are entitled to have a government that thinks keeping all of us alive is worth aiming for. Like recommending air-raid shelters during a war.

He certainly wasn’t the only person to react.
Don’t want to alarm anyone but the family of senior members of the government are now going into bat for the idea of just embracing death https://t.co/w5hwo8rMeU

Sarah Vine has her priorities right. It's not worth bankrupting the country to save people's lives, only for really important things like an imaginary feeling of sovereignty. pic.twitter.com/U6fWz4jJiJ

It's the old and vulnerable we worry about not the spoilt and pampered

I agree with Sarah Vine!
I wouldn't want the nation to bankrupt itself to save her sorry ass, either. https://t.co/pNZP1uoL2C

Some people, like @davemacladd, were baffled by more than her attitude to coronavirus deaths.
the most controversial thing about this is Sarah Vine thinking she has had a good life when most of it has been spent married to Michael Gove pic.twitter.com/HsqFw0B8rg
