Nice to see that the debate about what political leaders should wear to the Royal Wedding, i.e lounge suit or morning suit, has now even got to the serious-minded politicos on LabourList. The subject may be popular, and many may feel they have a valid opinion, but I’d like to point out some basic errors in the debate. Most of the lefties, like the BBC reporters when the 10 O'Clock News did the story, believe that the morning suit is basically for toffs while lounge is for The People. As someone who works at a Register Office in a large Northern English city, I would question this. True, most of our parties are working class, and most don’t wear morning suits, but a lot of them do – and I would go so far as to say that it’s now more working class to have a big showy set of wedding costumes, while the more middle-class people are more subtle and dressed down. I’d say that if Ed Milliband really wants to show solidarity with the masses, he should get a battered-looking morning suit on hire, preferably with the waistcoat straining over his belly. And his wife should expose plenty of flesh. I can’t believe how much skin some women get out at our ceremonies these days, but I suppose that is a very different story.
