Wives

Oh, for someone who, on attaining high office such as leader of a political party, would make a statement along the lines of: "I have a good marriage and do not think it necessary to trail my partner around hand in hand to demonstrate this, in what I think is a pernicious Hollywood attitude that has crept into public life in recent years." It could, I think, pull in quite a few female votes.
