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

It's ok you are commenting on the glasses not on the Prime Minister's appearance.

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!

Posted 01 February 2013 - 03:34 PM

I was wondering why she looked so good, and a friend mentioned the new specs and suddenly the penny dropped.  I kept assuming a Tim-like persona when I saw her on the telly and going: "have you done something to your hair.....is that a new outfit.....you look different, whatizit?????"
