Why did the BBC waste fifteen minutes discussing Theresa May’s footwear? The nation would be a better place if she was simply shoed out
This morning on BBC One’s breakfast show, the hosts spent twenty minutes discussing the inane matter of another programme showing a shot of Theresa May’s shoes.
Given the ‘Imelda Marcos of politics’, as the ‘Wheat Field Wanderer’ was once branded, prides herself on wearing everything from leopard-print kitten heels to bling gold hologram wellies and red and pink lips shoes, why on earth did these presenters even think it worthy for discussion?
Mrs May, it transpires, was also given three pairs of shoes by Russell & Bromley and discount cards for LK Bennett, Amanda Wakeley and Hobbs whilst Home Secretary. Perhaps, since she’s so utterly hopeless at representing Britain in Brexit negotiations and given she’s so keen to shop, she could stand down and take a job at her hand holding mate Donald Trump’s daughter’s fashion brand.
Of the hectoring vicar’s daughter, another fashion loving chum, Lady Meyer, once told The Sun: “Theresa is a serious woman [but] she talks about holidays, clothes… She’s quite a girl in that sense.” Shoe her out!
