Shapps Honours Shirt Pledge

Grant Shapps triggered much debate in the Guy Newsroom earlier appearing on telly in a what looked like a suspiciously expensive shirt. Surely he hadn’t gone back on his famous M&S promise?

The tie is a lovely shade of green…

    As if Shapps or Tory Bear know the least bit about welfare. When was the last time they relied on it?

    Or fashion for that matter…

    Yes you are right.

    Maybe this is a Tussauds Blair that has melted a little bit, which would explain the face off to one side.

    Surely Michael Green’s word should be good enough for anyone.

    Watch out for the cosmopolitan name changers says:

    But is it Grant Shapps or is it his alter ego Michael Green?

    Owen Jones says:

    Scientists are still struggling to find the weight of the average c*nt.
    This is due to Piers Morgan refusing to step on their scales.

    I see the posts are all up the shit again.

    David Icke says:

    No, he’s probably morphing into Michael Green live on telly…either that or he’s a fu’cking lizard.

    Red Top Hack says:

    So let me get this straight. In order for him to be wearing that shirt he presumably had to pick it up?

    Thought so…

    “Grant Shapps is a shirt lifter”

    I’d rather he went to a proper shirtmaker on Jermyn Street. M&S is strictly a pants-and-socks-only retailer. And food. And their Belgian lager is quite good. Where was I?

    Hargaret Modge, Labour MP and Hypocritical serial long term aggressive Tax Avoider + expenses thief says:

    Are we pleb taxpayers paying for his shirts? Will he be charging us for the actual cost or the cost of a solid gold shirt made by the finest Unicorn handlers as is the standard MP cheating b’stard expenses thief practice? It’s all in the rules….Section 3 …pissing all over the voters……

    Style Council says:

    Irrespective of where the shirt came from – and that collar is not M&S Fodder, the ensemble make him look like an estate agent.

    Get a proper jacket and tie next time.

    Dunno, they look alike, although Michael Green is a very nice man. You should buy his book.

    Corinne Stockheath says:

    He looks like an estate agent because that’s who clothed and fed him while he was housing minister.

    It certainly pays to be mute in situations such as this.

    even I’m forced to admit Grant is a bit of a Hunt at the end of the day, to be fair to him though he knows this himself better than anyone

    Given that he could have had his shirts made from cloth manufactured in this country by craftsmen (and women), cut by a skilled cutter and sewn together by an experienced shirtmaker all earning a living wage why is it virtuous to buy cheap made in China shirts and inject no money at all into the craft economy. Stikes me as a badge of honour myself, it’s not lie ha can’t afford it.

    I suppose Geedough has to cater for his gay readership but I can’t think of much that is less interesting than what drone uniform some pointless plonker wears.

    I have always bought my shirts from Jermyn Street none of this M and S 3 for 25 pounds whats happening to the Tory Party Shapps will be shopping at Primark next.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
