    I want to be respected as a professional, why do you mock me when I dress like I'm out on the town?

    All the feminazis are out defending her. I wonder if they would defend Boris if he dressed as medallion man?

    Can't see a problem with it. Too much fuss about nowt.

    PS I might watch political stuff a bit more if lady politicians stripped off completely. Only because I support a woman's right to make her own life style choices obviously.

    There is a fine line at times between business attire and out on the town attire but to direct quite this level of vitriol at someone because of their clothes is appalling. And it is primarily done towards women. I would love it if an up for it male MP tried the limits of parliamentary day wear to test at what point someone calls him a slut for his choice of clothes

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

    Reminds me of when Teresa May got absolutely slated for spending a grand of her own money on a pair of leather trousers. How very dare she! Funny how no-one questioned how much David Cameron spends on a suit..

    They would be too busy laughing - ever seen Boris dressed for his daily run?

    Breaking a dress code, accidentally or on purpose, does not make you a victim. Particularly if it is your place of work, and you are being paid £76k +exes.

    Being the subject of a Twitter storm is a different story. Twitter is indeed awful, as Tobin must know, having been a member for over 10 years. This actually does make her a victim, but less of a victim than many others who have seemingly received much worse treatment from the basement dwelling mob.

    Yes, women's appearance is of more interest than men's, often to other women. This is the result of culture and history. Men are stuck in a basic uniform. Women have more freedom. This does not make victims of anyone.

    I failed to get into a nightclub once for wearing jeans/trainers. Not a victim, except of my own lack of planning.
