Even as someone that has never read it I still know how a Vogue photo shoot works so I assume his outrage is all for effect. ūüėČ

No - It was because he was passed over for the shoot.

Maybe his kiester would clash with the cardigan?

Angela Rayner poses for British Vogue in an outfit worth £3,570

Champagne socialist in frock that would stock a food bank for a week says b*****r the little people.

Famously, when interviewed by fashion magazines, people always wear their own clothes. Vogue, again famously, does not employ stylists or have wardrobes of their own that they use to dress interviewees for photos.

Nothing wrong with a gorgeous woman wearing nice clothes. She needs to be a bit careful about any comments about Tory toffs for a while though. ūüôā

I went to see her speak at Norwich Arts Centre last year. She was very poorly assisted by Clive Lewis who was an embarrassment. 

She was obviously assisted by a left wing audience but her answer to the first question was wonderful. A lady asked if she had been disadvantaged by being a woman. AR simply replied "no" and moved on to the next question. She went up hugely in my estimation. 

I was ambivalent about her beforehand but I came away thinking that she's a hugely intelligent woman and she certainly doesn't suffer fools gladly. 

As for Vogue, why on earth shouldn't she pose for them. Good luck to her. The Labour Party is about looking after people who can't look after themselves.

All I can think of is Heseltine having the pi$$ ripped out of him for wearing combat fatigues at the Greenham Common protests (Spitting Image)

Still, at least Heseltine actually served as a guardsman - "9 weeks! During the 1980s his habit of wearing a Guards Regimental tie, sometimes incorrectly knotted with a red stripe on the neck, was the subject of much acerbic comment from military figures and from older MPs with distinguished war records. [contributor] estimated that he must have worn the tie on more days than he actually served in the Guards."

Good Lord. Knotting his tie incorrectly. Didn't he know that it's things like that that made our country great? Very disappointing.

There was a quip from a Tory grandee about Heseltine that he was obviously an arriviste because he had to buy his own furniture, as opposed of course to inheriting it all.

All over the Indy this morning- gist is basically Starmer closet Tory….

Oh dear. May as well vote Conservative then. 

Sorry, but history proves that this country doesn't elect left wing governments. Maybe in 25 years time but not now. 

Your choice is another 5 years of incompetence and corruption or Starmer.

You could always move to a Lib Dem stronghold or come up to bonnie Scotland where you still get a choice of two, but it's SNP or Labour.

I think I remember the SNP.  I'm sure they used to be a political party.

Didn't Alba make average electronic stuff in the 80s/90s? A bit of a change in direction becoming politicians!

I remember their stuff from the 1970s, it was definitely nowhere near average.

There are a lot of seats where the the Lib Dems are better placed to challenge than Labour is. I still hold out hopes that Labour will balls it up enough not to get an outright majority.

Starmer does benefit from being largely bland enough that the attack lines don't stick.

So far we've had the shock that he bought his Mum a field to keep donkeys in, he had a curry once and in his work as a lawyer he's interacted with some bad people. Honestly the best attack line is that he's very dull.

None of the usual 'he's a secret commie' stuff works, he's yet to make a hash of eating a bacon sandwich and he's not called a somewhat annoying bigot a bigot on a live microphone. 

I'm assuming they'll either try and unsuccessfully link him to Corbyn or they'll double down on the Saville stuff, which is pure gutter politics.

What about this one. Labours answer to John Major I'm not sure if that is good or bad?

Major was the last Tory Prime Minister that was anywhere near a decent bloke. He is a moderate, one nation Tory that at least had integrity, the Tory party hasn't offered up anything remotely close to him since.
