Mrs Clegg in Zara and Topshop

Every year Guido likes to bring you the most important news from the leader’s speeches at conference: the fashion. Today he can reveal that Mrs Clegg will be wearing a  Zara top with Topshop shoes.

This is to signify the strong links between Spanish design (Zara) and British high street manufacturing. Apparently.

And now you know.

    Philip Green says:

    For Nick Clegg’s leader’s speech I would recommend “NEXT”

    Steve Miliband says:

        Fashion Blog says:

        I trust Mrs Miliband and Mrs Cameron will also be getting a page of their own.
        Or else fashion bloggers, Mz Harman and Woman’s Hour will be on your case.

    Would Miriam’s law firm be a Spanish practice?

    But still M & S Knickers?

    Nick Clegg says:

    School Dinners for Millionaires

      Joe Public says:

      Listening to Danny Alexander try to explain the thinking behind this NEW Limp Dim initiative of free school meals for millionaires’ and other children was like watching a worm wriggling on the fishing hook.
      When asked why they did not state, a say, £25,000 threshold there was a noticeable time gap – like, why did I not think of this like we keep doing with the changing goal posts on the mansion tax?
      Joined up thinking they cannot do as their new target audience is only 25% of the population, so government is out and coalition with either party is their new goal.
      Joe Public may not agree.

    Viv says:

    Speaking as someone who has to buy from charity shops, these political wives who can afford top designers but pretend they ‘shop in the high street’ infuriate me!

    Mehdi Hasan says:

    Can I have some time to myself?

  10. 11
    Nick Clegg says:

    And the free school meals will be Rabbit & Snail Paella, washed down with a carajillo. Desert will be pack of Fortunas’

    Exactly what manufacturing takes place on the British high street?

    Like two puppies fighting under a blanket.

    Sunny Jim says:

    DILLIGAF – as a certain well known Aussie might say…

    Spot The Ball says:

    I hate to say this but I did see her in her bright red dress on tv but when she walked she looked as if she had a penis, I do hope that I am wrong and gladly apologise in advance if wrong.

    FairBobby says:

    How much has Mrs Clegg earned from her wind turbine investment?

    I'd love to be the houseman says:

    Not bad for >300k earning conference bunny!

  17. 28

    No cable-knit sweater for Clegg, then? Surprising.

    Cock up the arsehole time says:

    Bojo deserves a crack at her crack.

    Penfold says:

    And a red dress so that hubby knows which way to bend on policy, otherwise he’s toast and the settee beckons.
    Miriam, the La Pasionaria of British politics.

    Hm. Neat bit of nooky, that.

    Spanish design and British manufacturing via a sweatshop in Bangladesh.

      Fashion Blog says:

      “…via a sweatshop in Bangladesh.”
      Not true according to this Australian video on Zara manufacturing and distribution.
      Zara manufacturing looks to me like A model European companies should be copying.

    Simon Hughes says:

    Clegg’s not a proper Lib dem. He’s always got an attractive woman on his arm for god’s sake. He doesn’t qualify until he’s split a few rings

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
