Because Michael Gove doesn’t seem to have anything better to do (like maybe, ya know, running a government department) he decided to take a quiz titled Who’s Your Game of Thrones soulmate.

Right, so he’s pulled into quizzes like the 'everyman'. Got it.

The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs shared the results on Twitter.

His GoT soulmate is Tyrion Lannister.

The character description says “many have judged this storied and tortured man by his stature – but hopefully you are not one to jump to conclusions.”

Some of the questions included did he like weddings and what would he choose to play on game night.

And this little gem:

Wonder which one he picked...

Is Gove perhaps drawing underdog parallels here? Or suggesting he, like Tyrion, is the voice of reason in a chaotic kingdom? (Like that time he said people had “enough of experts” when economists talked about Brexit?) Or that like Tyrion, he is, down to his core, mostly good?

Or perhaps is it Tyrion's often erudite speeches that get to the heart of a matter?

People have thoughts, but the main gist of it seems to be “NO, NO, NO. NO."

Others suggested more fitting characters for him. Like Joffrey. Or Littlefinger. Or Joffrey.

There was also the, rather small point of his...job. And uh, doing it instead of quizzing online.

Can you not.
