Gove heads Ruffley probe, implied domestic abuse is ‘life choice’

With pressure building on David Ruffley, the Tory MP who accepted a caution for assaulting his partner, what better person to investigate the matter than new chief whip, Michael Gove. Errrr …

This from last November:

“Women’s Aid is challenging statements made by Michael Gove in a speech on reforms to social care which, it says, imply that domestic violence is a ‘life choice’ that women should take responsibility for. Women’s Aid is highlighting that it is not ‘ideology’ or a lack of personal responsibility which makes women seek help from social workers to escape domestic violence, but a real fear for their safety.”

This from the party which tried to put the sister of someone accused of protecting a paedophile in charge of a child abuse probe.
