The concept of “Leaders’ Wives” is in danger of being done to death by the various branches of the meeja. And, unfortunately, two of those wives seem more than happy to go along with the circus: Sarah Brown (now with 1,117,900 Twitter followers) and Samantha Cameron (and no, I’m not abbreviating it) are happily wheeling themselves out to bolster their husbands’ campaigns.
Fortunately, this trend is not being followed by Miriam González Durántez. Er, who she? The answer to this future pub quiz regular teaser is that she is married to Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, and has her own career to get on with. So she has decided to get on with that career, and that is that. Tough cookie for the assembled hackery.
And good for her, say I.
