Coffee Shot: Stay classy Harlow

6 January 2014

Did Robert Halfon, the Tory MP for Harlow, get a new suit for Christmas? He was resplendent in this russet/chestnut suit at today’s Education Questions. Had he not been wearing short hair, he would have passed for Ron Burgundy of Anchorman fame. Bold.

    Stay classy Harlow? You’ve obviously never set foot there before, Harlow doesn’t even know the meaning of the word!

  • John Border

    The forker should be sacked for tweeting at the taxpayers expense.

  • James Strong

    Perhaps mildly amusing but certainly no more than that.
    I look forward to your post taking the p**s out of one of the :
    wimmin, mohammedans or homosexualists in the chamber.

    • Fergus Pickering

      What is the difference between a homosexual, like William Pitt the Younger, for instance, and a homosexualIST?

  • Robert Taggart

    Why can the ‘little women’ dress as THEY see fit, but, the ‘big guys’ still have to conform to a ‘tie-ered’ convention ? !
    Nice one RHH.

  • CraigStrachan

    I have a suit just like that.

    • Fergus Pickering

      I don’t have any suits at all. Suits are for nerds.

  • Daniel Maris

    Isn’t it time we gave up on the boring suitism. Male clothing in the past was a lot more interesting. If you look at how people dressed in the 1960s it was far more colourful.

    Stop being a suitist Steerpike.

    • GenJackRipper

      Stop being counter-culture.

    Not to mention the cut of the trousers !

    What is it that people say about not wearing ‘Brown in Town’?…
