Fairly standard photo call of a Govt minister "on the phone to someone important" like we see often. Weirdly including a star speakerphone, pads of blank paper and a coffee machine right next to your chair.

But wait...

Those shoes with those trahziz are. An. Absolute. Disgrace.

(For the avoidance of doubt, I have in the past also commented on Farage's mustard cords and his cheap n' nasty taste in Panamas. FFS, it's a Super Fino or just be done with a titfa from Primark.)

I went on to Lock's website. Never mind nigh on seven grand for a fucking Panama, a silk topper having 'P.O.A' against it? :shock: And yet somehow, I can imagine a certain MP owning one...

I know you're considered to be a bit of an institution 'round here Abers, but is there any chance you can tone it down a bit? It's all very 1970s and, to be frank, tiresome.
Apologies. I do understand that Liz Truss's knickers are somewhat offensive. They might even be tiresome. Or even from the 1970s.

I 'd take issue with your assessment of me as being considered an institution. The VD clinic is an institution.

Lock's pricing is insane Very much the typical Mayfair "if you need to ask" mould of vanity pricing. But, I don't think that 750€ is outrageous for a Super Fino with a good three months' work in it.

(I buy mine from a couple in northern Berlin, one of whom is Peruvian and who has organised a women's collective to produce these things, way up in the hills. The $$ goes straight to the women and their pisshead men folk don't see a cent.)

You'll easily get eight or ten summers out of one of these beauties.
