The knot on your tie is a mess, try a double windsor knot and use a mirror. As for the spectacles, the less said the better.
Someone enlighten me. I swear there is not one word here that could not have been spoken of the last administration's Local Government White Paper! I'm not saying the policy's wrong; it just seems odd getting all excited about the newness of it.
Tidy your tie.
Off topic, but I popped up recently to criticise the general delight in fiscal austerity in the comments of this blog.The IMF seems to have changed its mind on austerity -- it is likely to be a headwind to GDP in the short run. This is something the Conservative Party is going to have to deal with.Article from the Economist here: http://www.economist.com/node/17147618?story_id=17147618&CFID=149559986&CFTOKEN=56581137
you desperately need different, much larger, specs. You have a full face and it needs to be offset, not exaggerated.
@ Julius WhacketIt's very odd getting excited about local government full stop. No wonder people are more interested in Mr Dale's tie than in his content.I would like to ask, however, what business a senior public official, the chief executive of Birmingham city council, has being at a party conference. The permanent secretary at the MoD, say, wouldn't be allowed to go there to lobby for a bigger budget (or allowed there at all), so how comes this supposedly impartial local official can do precisely that?
@ FenrirNo gentleman uses a Double-Windsor, it's a poncey affectation. For that matter, no gentleman cares too much about his appearance, apart from wearing clean clothes - and washing and shaving properly of course. But all gentlemen wear clean and well polished shoes.
re specs ...are they new? I think they are a bit small for your face...sorry not meaning to be trivial but that is my opinion.
