If I had been running in the UK General election, this is definitely what I would have worn on the campaign trail. My spin doctor would be pleased with my choice because of the volumes that this number speaks to my personality.

The blazer says; “I’m capable of working in an office environment. I can do the 9-5.”

The belt says; “When I see a Saint Laurent dupe for £20 instead of £300 I leap on that deal. I’m just one of you.”

The scarf says: “I will make a case for the elderly population and anyone who dresses like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.”

The jeans say: “I am acutely aware of the price of a pint of milk and the cost of heating your home in the winter because my knees are subjected to gale force winds all year round.”

My manifesto would be simple – free tampons (don’t get me started on this one), dogs encouraged in all spaces and places and a minimum of 8 weeks paid annual leave for everyone – cause we could all do with a little more sunshine in our lives.

I hope I can count on your vote.
