VINE advises Westminster to come from politicians and their families
In an article about the resignation of Matt Hancock, the former Minister of Health, Vine wrote about how life in Westminster created barriers between partners.
In an enlightening column, she said: “Unless someone is ready to take over the other parts of your life, it will be difficult to do these high-level, high-pressure, and high-risk jobs.
