A concerned wee reader gets in touch regarding the use of boxes by politicians in photo-ops:
“At just 5’5” and with our MEP, Ian Duncan, and David Cameron being well over 6 foot, I confess I’m perched on a box of jump leads I retrieved from the boot of my car in this pic taken at Loch Lomond last year. However, the PM is such a gentleman that when we last had our picture taken at Number 10, he slipped off his shoes so that I didn’t look just quite so short.
There’s the difference – Miliband bigging himself up in front of men, while Cameron is more than happy to be a gentleman to women…”
Thanks for clearing that one up, Ruth from Scotland…
