You’d think that pretty much every politician in the UK would be busy these days thinking about Brexit and you know, the future of the country.  

But it seems that Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Micheal Gove, has other, more pressing matters to attend to. Such as finding out who his Game of Thrones soulmate is.

The MP tweeted out a result from the “Who’s your Game of Thrones soulmate?” quiz from quiz site Magiquiz on Wednesday morning — in the middle of a workday. 

Gove “got” Tyrion Lannister, a man described by Magiquiz as a “storied and tortured” man. He appears to have shared his results using an automated sharing function.

A lot of people on Twitter noticed this behaviour, which seems a bit odd for an elected politician. 

Aren’t you supposed to be running a government department?!

#Brexit deal almost dead in the water.

The UN give a damning verdict on the effects of austerity.

The Tories are divided and in disarray.

Leadership challenge hanging over PM.

But all’s good, because at least now we know Michael Gove’s Game of Thrones soulmate 👇 #PoliticsLive https://t.co/oRVXWqvkhX

Twitterers had a lot to say about Gove’s quiz result. 

We’re sure that Gove is happy with his GoT soulmate, though. In a video dug out by Politico, Gove says that his favourite character on the show is “undoubtedly” Tyrion Lannister.

Mashable has reached out to Michael Gove for comment. 

Happy humpday, Michael.
