"Gordon in Gucci??"

Isn't it supposed to be The Silly Season as far as content of newspapers is concerned?
Today I had a peep at " The Times". Needless to say, MP's hols are still newsworthy....although I'm glad the style reports have finished....because how CAN one compare the holiday gear of the savvy Camerons with that of the dour ( over-used word, I know...but it's accurate) and academic Gordon and his handsome, rather buxom Sarah??
Why on earth SHOULD Gordon fling on flowery shorts, reveal his knees and snog Sarah on the sands....when he's clearly happiest being dignified in public and keeping a low profile in his brogues, his roomy jacket and his well-pressed shirts??
Gordon's a serious man; being seen holding hands with Sarah and smiling slightly pleasantly ( bearing his teeth) must certainly be enough for Gordon.
The fellow needs a nice HOLIDAY, not a new wardrobe..

Well I certainly don't want to see his knees!

Nice to have you back.

High there, grandma! Nice to have you back. Yes, I know Gordon's a bit nerdy but David Cameron is considerably younger and still has the 'figure' (and knees) for shorts. Does it really matter what they wear, surely it ought to be their policies that they are judged on?
Happy hols!

Thanks for sharing that, Lucy! Good to see you and I bet your territory is particularly lovely at present.


Thanks! I have ( and you've received snaps to prove it!) a very lovely new granddaughter.

Your point re Gordon is exactly what I'm saying...the papers have been suggesting all kinds of alternative "outfits" for him ...when ( as you say too) he should be allowed to be HIMSELF.

Our paper carried a photo of the Brits meeting Nicholas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni, and implied that Sarah was rather dowdy next to Carla - quite frankly, I thought Sarah's outfit - white jacket with interesting black detailing round the neck area - was classy and Carla's was grey and boring. slim isn't everything.

Quite agree re size being no problem with stylishnesss...some of the most interestingly clad folk I know are not sylphs and look marvellous..
