On The Other Foot

Look at the state of this.

There are people who still go on about Michael Foot's "donkey jacket", although it was in fact a brand new short coat from Harrods and admired by the Queen Mother.

Jeremy Corbyn was regularly accused of looking like a tramp at the Cenotaph and elsewhere. But it was Boris Johnson who managed to hold his wreath upside down in 2019.

And now, this. It is a choice to wear a suit that it is the wrong size, or to neglect to comb one's hair. Johnson is declaring that Brand Boris is all that matters. Nothing could be more disrespectful.
