Mary PertAss yesterday branded the UK’s women politicians as ‘ugly’ and thinks they could do with a makeover.
They could do with a give over Mary, actually. Women in politics (bar Dianne Abbott who needs running over not a makeover) have demanding, hard won and important jobs in public service. Real jobs that don’t involve shopping and self branding straight talk .
Mary believes that a woman MP in an Aztec necklace, some chunky bangles or a shift dress in this season’s shade of sludge would make the House of Commons a prettier place. Are male MP’s sartorially perfect, or a lost cause? Because Mary doesn’t mention them at all.
The day before yesterday I thought Mary Portas was an entertaining waste of time - now I think that in full make up, sky high maintenance conker coloured bob and the priciest of this autumn’s fashion she has shot herself in her spike heeled, boot-shoed foot.
In career terms I think Mary Portas may have jumped the shark with those sister unfriendly comments- but so long as she looks good…..
