A Telegraph journalist drew attention to a Labour MP’s cleavage yesterday by putting it in her post and asking who the MP was.
No longer in the Lost & Found box, the breasts belong to Lisa Nandy, MP for Wigan. While newspapers and journalists battle and debate whether the cleavage should have been pointed out at all, I do feel it rasies the issue of appropriateness.
I’m not being an old fashioned minnie here, I am a fashion designer, but I do feel that there is a time and a place for displaying your assets and perhaps centre front in Parliament is not it. I have never been to the Houses of Parliament (also on my To Do list) so don’t know if it was terribly hot and I also don’t have big breasts so am inexpereinced in dealing with them.
My sister constantly laments being busty and the problems it causes. She feels people constantly stare at her chest while she lectures and does tutorials. I think she’s really lucky and the size issue is in her head but I know it causes her some stress so I do consider this when shopping for her (yes, I do).
What do you think, should MP Lisa Nandy have buttoned up or is it okay to show cleavage in Parliament?
