From Liz Jones in the Daily Mail:
“The occasion was a sombre one, steeped in history, deserving of gravitas and quiet reflection.
“The statue of the Queen Mother, unveiled on the Mall yesterday, required the gathered dignitaries to show an appropriate level of respect, and to turn up in muted tones and designs.
“It is not rocket science. It is not, in fact, difficult at all.”
Yet all the Mail could talk about was the fact that Culture secretary Andy Burnham and his wife Frankie, who attended the event with Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah, were both dressed differently from the others. Jones made a blithering attack on Ms Burnham’s attire:
“An outfit befitting a six year-old with attention deficit disorder than the wife of a Minister of the Crown in the presence of the Royal Family, the eyes of the nation upon her.”
Really? Yeah, right, like the eyes of the nation actually give a f*ck! But she goes on:
“Mrs Burnham, let me try to overlook the unadorned, Eastern European refugee make-up and hairstyle, as well as the floppy hat you probably had left over from some awful suburban wedding, and let me first address your patent Mary Jane shoes.
“Hideous and inappropriate.”
Ms Jones, do you seriously think that any member of the Royal Family will be looking at Ms Burnham and thinking, “How dare that woman dress like that, the tart?” They probably have more important things to think about than to read the crap you regularly write in the Mail.
