I have a question for the equality brigade of which I am proud not to be a member. In my travels around London as well as Oxfordshire, it is clear to me that ladies of all ages take a greater pride in their dress than gentlemen. The majority of ladies that I see clearly take some pride in their appearance and their choice of clothing. The same cannot be said of the majority of men whose choice of plimsoles, scruffy jeans, even scruffier upper wear and a general lack of style contrasts with ladies, particularly when they appear to be a couple.
My question to the equality brigade who would seek to consign us to a boring and stultifying unanimity is “should the ladies be dressing down or should the gentlemen be dressing up?” I know this appears to be a superficial and fatuous question but the lengths to which the politically corect veterans will go to achieve their ideal of equality leads me to suspect they may attempt an answer and I would be interested to read it.
