Samantha Brick, four years ago, stirred the pot with the suggestion that women resented her because she was pretty, and that, well, they are wrong and they ought not to do that.
Today, she has more advice for women, and it’s decidedly harsher:
My, my how I chortled into my café au lait this week when I read that British mothers had plummeted to yet another all time low.
Yes, I’m talking about wearing pyjamas, which have become such common clobber at the school gate that a headteacher at a school in Darlington this week was forced to ban them. More worryingly, she caused such uproar for doing so one mother turned up wearing her nightclothes in protest.
Women what on earth are you thinking? The first crime you have committed is wearing clothes that should be left relegated to your childhood. Second of all, you’re wearing said saggy-bottomed, elastic-waisted, passion-killers in public.
She probably could have stopped there, but she didn’t:
Is it any wonder that your other half is sneakily logging on to Facebook in search of another lover, constantly volunteering to go overseas on “essential” work trips, and going to bed much later than you in a bid to avoid your could-try-harder, overweight self, encased in a sweaty man-made fibre outfit.
Samantha herself would never, ever do such a thing, but then she’s currently living in France, where such a thing is Simply Not Done.
Let me tell you, no French mother in possession of all her senses would ever dream of lounging around at home in a pair of pyjamas or even putting a pair on in order to go to bed (that’s what negligees are for).
As for sporting bedwear to the school gate? It would never ever happen in France.
Let us hope no one ever sends her a link to People Of Walmart.
And for the sake of completeness, here’s what she looks like today.
