One can debate the merits of Nicola Sturgeon’s leadership over Alex Salmond’s endlessly. However, in my opinion, Ms Sturgoen beats Mr Salmond on sartorial elegance effortlessly. Not least because Mr Salmond famously wore the same tie for seven years.
However, I do feel that Ms Sturgoen should have been advised better before her recent trip to a construction site in Fife. Inspection of her attire shows that safety hat, protective gloves and a high-visibility vest are all present. However, in place of safety boots she is wearing high-healed shoes. Is this a case of style before safety or was she simply dressing up for the cameras? Whatever the reason, it is a bad advertisement for improving construction site safety in Scotland.
