Nick Clegg hits back at Daily Mail reshuffle catwalk article with his photo
Nick Clegg officially won the internet yesterday when he snapped back at the Daily Mail for its “Downing Street catwalk” coverage of the Cabinet reshuffle.
Suggesting that he didn’t want to be seen as “too '80s cabin attendant'” in his outfit for the day, Clegg parodied the reporting style of the Mail, which saw new environment secretary Liz Truss described as looking like an air hostess for pairing red with blue.
What I wore to the office today. Fingers crossed the Mail approves. Hope I don't look too '80s cabin attendant'. pic.twitter.com/bVy7wCkfrG

Another one of the new Cabinet members was described as having “blonde mane was thrown backwards as in a shampoo advert," while the dress of a third apparently looks like a swimsuit out of TV show Splash.
One thing that I will not miss about working for the Mail: unspeakably awful and demeaning spreads about women. pic.twitter.com/DqIS86kYDm — Becky Barrow (@beckymbarrow) July 16, 2014
