I know it's supposed to be really off and uneducated to comment on the Prime Ministers appearance, but I've seen her a lot over the last few days and just want to keep blurting out...

"I love her new glasses!"

carry on...  ph34r.gif

I love it too, so you are not alone on that one, I saw her multiple times squinting and I was wondering how long she would hold out for. Good on her and I hope she feels relief!

They really suit her. She looks better than she has done in ages.

Has she done something to her hair too? It looks darker.
