OH, AND DO UP YOUR TIE.
|Mr Corbyn looks like most of us do in off-the-peg suits and Primark shirts.|
But, whatever your views about his traditional Labour policies, or his view on Scottish independence, no one can deny that he comes over as a decent and polite man with a set of principles.
Every time we get new leaders at Westminster, we ate told that the time of "New Politics" has arrived. It never has, of course. Within days leaders are sniping at each other over the despatch box and it's back to "Old Politics".
Corbyn, however, has tried to return Prime Minister's Questions to what it was supposed to be about. Getting the Prime Minister to answer questions on current topics of concern to the ordinary public. He's even asked questions on behalf of individuals.
It goes without saying that the Prime Minister never answers the questions, and, much to their discredit, the toffs behind him tend to laugh and jeer at the problems besetting "Mrs A" from Liverpool, or Mr Z and his children from Bexhill-on-Sea.
|Cameron, on the other hand, is the very|
quintessence of sartorial elegance.
Cameron looked angry as he replied that his mother would say "put on a proper suit; do up your tie and sing the national anthem!"
So there you have the measure of the man. The health service in England is falling to pieces; the leader of the opposition is concerned about it, as all residents of England should be, and the Prime Minister is hand out a lecture on sartorial elegance.
Sorry. That's pathetic.
Corbyn isn't the snappiest dresser, we all know. Cameron, on the other hand has, no doubt, never worn an off the peg suit in his life and his suits may well cost what mos people spend on clothes in a couple of years. So what?
It's not the clothes that matter; it's the policies. After all if we want to see nice clothes, we can go to fashion shows. Not that there's anything wrong with snappy dressing, if it's to your taste. It's just not necessary.
|Expensive suit, everything matching. |
How would Corbyn look in this?
We really deserve far better politicians at the head of the UK than we have.
Addendum: Thought you might enjoy some of these:
|That suit cost even more than Dave's|
|Bet he's like the Queen Mother. Never wear anything twice|
Love the Yellow one...
|The sight of him makes my flesh crawl, |
but he bought good suits...
|Not so much a suit more a big top.|
|Nice suit, ye creepy old bastard.|
|Yep, that will have cost more than my car.|
