Unfortunately, clothes talk. They talk about money, power, status and, in an image-ridden society, if the clothes don’t look right by some mysterious criteria, that too apparently speaks volumes.

So, pity poor Sarah Brown, she deserves better treatment than that which is about to be served up day in, day out by female commentators obsessed more by the politics of appearance than the politics that matter.
