We're Quite Unforgiving



Goodness me, surely Samantha Cameron has enough 'contacts' to know what to wear to the Braemar Games. An ill-fitting trouser suit didn't go down at all well with the people I know attended.

"For special occasions we wear skirts," said one female observer and another said her choice was, "typically out of touch with us Scots."

Today it was the highlight in the Highland Games calendar.The final games take place in Blairgowrie tomorrow when many of today's participants take part enroute to their homes. Thankfully the weather dried up by lunchtime today and a good time was had by all.

As for Mrs Cameron: time to change your designer Samantha if you wish to gain some fashion sense. From the knowledgeable ladies of Perthshire and beyond.

We're quite unforgiving.

SR, In answer to your comment, perhaps Sam can be forgiven as I believe the Tories believe in 'trousering' at every opportunity?

tris said...

She a vinegar faced woman, isn't she? And, going by rumours, she is, like Blair's wife before her, one of these women who thinks she's quite the bees knees because she's prime minister's wife. Selfish and demanding, pompous, filled with her own self importance.

But I think it's strange to criticise what she's wearing, which is drab and ugly, without saying that Cameron is inappropriately dressed too.

He's at a highland games, not a bloody IMF summit.

Your friends are right though, these two English toffs are well out of line with our thinking and clearly wasted no effort in trying to find out what would be appropriate.

'Anything will do dear. They don't vote for us here.'

subrosa said...

But WfW aren't they all wide-boys rather than skin tights?

subrosa said...

Your last sentence is spot on Tris. Mrs Cameron is a wealthy woman in her own right, but surely someone in London would have had the sense to suss out what she should wear.

Why they didn't ask me I don't know...

tris said...

I think she was trying to get you, but you were on the phone advising Mrs Salmond, who always looks lovely, and Mrs Obama was inthe queue waiting, so she had to just throw on some old garbage that was clearly too small for her.

Mrs Price Williams wouldn't do the washing in something as tight as that!

All these holidays, she must have put on a few kilos.

You'd not believe it but the word recognition was 'nomodel'... bloody right there!!

As a guest in Scotland they're always welcome.

But as emissaries of the Westminster establishment the least said about them the better.

Conan the Librarian™ said...

I think her arse looks ok.

At least he's not wearing tweed...

Michele said...

How delightfully frank of you all to abuse the way someone looks, simply because you disapprove of their politics.

May I say I disapprove of yours Subrosa - and your blog heading photograph makes you look a trifle dowdy and a little podgy.

Of course I make these comments in the same frank and open fashion of your previous commentators; which are - but naturally- completely devoid of personal spite.

PS I know that my photo makes me look like an anaemic academic - but that unfortunately is indeed the cross I bear.

subrosa said...

Tris, please, I must let it be known I would never advise the Obama woman. Wouldn't have a clue where to start.;)

subrosa said...

Well said Crinkly.

subrosa said...

What's wrong with tweed Conan. A Harris tweed jacket can look stunning.

subrosa said...

Michele, this is nothing to do with politics, but it was a light-hearted post about Mrs Cameron, who the London media call a fashion icon.

Her trouser suit doesn't flatter her at all does it? Surely you must agree. She's had bad advice.

As for me, unfortunately my header is not me. You're right though, I am possibly thought as dowdy, overweight and unfashionable. Quite a compliment at 65 really, although I scrub up well and still apply eyeliner evenly.

As for your photo - I daren't comment. :)

Raedwald made some good points on his blog. It's just a statement to say he isn't interested in you lot. No barbour jacket. Not even a small gesture of clan Cameron tartan. He was photographed with similar shoes and clothes in Tuscany the other week.
And Conan is right Sam's got a lovely bum. Her trouser suit 'flatters' if you're a bloke SR ;)

subrosa said...

Must nip off to Raedwald RM. I've been too busy clearing up after the revellers today that I haven't read any blogs yet.

Of course it 'flatters' RM and I can see why. Didn't do her justice though because she's a bonny woman. A casual dress and jacket would have been far more suitable.

As for him. Well...

Observer said...

She's showing off her post pregnancy figure, & good for her she's regained it. She's wearing the wrong clothes & shoes for cavorting about at a highland games, but should be forgiven for that.

Marying David Cameron now, well that was a mistake.

subrosa said...

Well Observer, I couldn't agree more with your last sentence.

I suppose she should be forgiven for wearing something far more suited to an Edinburgh meeting, but with her background and her parents having a massive estate, I would have thought she'd have more of a clue about what the 'country set' are wearing this year. :)

tris said...

Jeez guys... I guess it must be an age thing. I think she's hideous. And her backside might be OK (she's a tad old for me) but that stuff is too tight; it flattens it. Bums are supposed to be round.

He looks as if his suit cost more than my annual salary, but BLACK shoes in the country, Davie lad? Surely with his upbringing he knows that's a no no.

Anyway, from what I heard he p***ed off the Queen. He kept her waiting and Annie's husband was sent to tell them to get a move on. The Queen's face suggests that she might have wished for more congenial company. don't you think.

She's probably thinking how inappropriately they are dressed.

Incidentally, I heard that Samantha borrowed the trouser suit from a fashion house. I guess it's a bit of advertising... but once again, how cheap and tacky are these people.

She's got more money than god and she's borrowing clothes... tat.

The Queen is probably less than pleased that a weekend at Balmoral with the monarch has been used as a cheap stunt by a fashion house with the connivance of Her Majesty's first minister.

Bet she wishes it was the weekend that they have Eck and Mrs Eck. They're much more fun.

subrosa said...

You certainly made me smile this morning Tris.

I heard, first hand, that Lizzie wasn't too pleased with the Camerons because she had to send a henceman to tell them it wasn't the Cameron glad-handing show and they should have been following her. Seemingly the two of them looked very embarrassed as they were forced to sing 'God Save The Queen' from their place with the crowds. Then they nipped pretty smartish into the marquee.

Yes, this business of wearing 'borrowed' clothing is becoming silly. I shouldn't think many sensible women are impressed by it and, even if I could afford that trouser suit, I certainly wouldn't buy it. For a start it's not well tailored...

tris said...

I understand that the left early, before the traditional church... Oooops, that's another person who doesn't like Dave!

subrosa said...

Mmm, another poor decision Tris. Didn't know that. My information was from friends attending who saw the whole thing.

Brian said...

They ought to have worn this desirable Scottish summer accessory to boost private enterprise in Scotland. Or have the wee midgies succumbed to the cold and wet weather this year?

tris said...

No SR. They didn't leave the games early, they left Balmoral early on Sunday and missed church.

Maybe the atmosphere was a little tense?

subrosa said...

Auch Brian you're the second person so suggest that particular fashion item.

Midgies don't like me but I believe from others they're as rife as ever.

subrosa said...

Oh dear Tris. I would have thought they would know how to behave when in Scotland. But then we don't matter to Cameron or many of Westminster's politicians. Their concern is with impressing the good folk of the SE of England.
