The uniform of the enemy

All hell broke loose in Parliament today over Labour MP Clare Curran wearing an old Highlanders rugby jersey, in protest against their new green one.

It has inspired blog posts by Sue Kedgley and David Farrar,   But what is “business attire”?  I guess the woman depicted to the left is in “business attire”, because that is what she wears in her business.

The problem with Speaker Lockwood Smith’s ruling is that he expects all MPs to dress in what I call the “uniform of the enemy” – i.e the clothes that those who have desecrated our planet and oppressed our people traditionally wear.

P.S. – I personally prefer the new Highlanders Jersey colour, although to be Green (as opposed to green) it should really be C:95 M:0 Y:100 K:27.
