Now the Daily Mail thinks election is about leader’s wife’s underwear

Elections used to about politicians. Then they became about politicians and their spouses. Now the Daily Mail introduces us to politicians, their spouses and their underwear choices with a “story” about where Miriam Gonzalez Durantez buys her underwear.

As Next Left points out, the story doesn’t have a name to it – just the generic “Daily Mail reporter” by-line. I wonder why?

UPDATE: As pointed out by several people on Twitter, the News of the World ran a similar piece first.

UPDATE 2: And as for Jan Moir’s contribution: sigh.

  • What an utterly, utterly lame piece of trash by the Daily Mail.

  • Its just spin – a total non-story, & I’m not a LibDem fanboi. But I am appalled at the pro-Tory spin pouring out from the usual suspects. Only the TV news seems balanced now

  • Is that the sound of the barrel scraping? I’ve bought bras from Rigby and Peller because they give fantastic service. Does this make me one of the super-rich? My bank balance says otherwise…..

  • The NOTW exclusive was even trashier listing (with photos) some items she could have bought.
