M&S Suit Nearly As Popular As Churchill
A GREY, single-breasted Marks and Spencer suit with four-button cuffs and flat-fronted trousers is almost as popular as Sir Winston Churchill, it emerged last night.
According to a Sunday Times poll, 72% want the suit to be in charge in the event of another war against Hitler.
And a further 83% said that only the suit could really think about starting to begin to hopefully tackle the obstacles that are in the way of possibly making some sort of eventual difference to an as yet undefined quantity of stuff.
The public reaction to the matching jacket and trousers has now thrown everything in Britain wide open with experts stressing that nothing may ever be the same again, especially for those who have become accustomed to having a job and some money.
Joanna Kramer, from Finsbury Park, said: "The thing I really like about it is the way it came across as being pure new wool with an understated lining made from a mixture of polyester and viscose.
"And the little bag of spare buttons made me feel that I was finally being treated like a grown-up."
Bill McKay, from Hatfield, added: "I really liked the way someone had put a shirt and tie on the same hangar as the suit and then tied the tie so you could see how it would actually look with that particular shirt and tie. It was really fresh and exciting."
But Martin Bishop, professor of political buttons at Reading University, said: "Don't get me wrong, it's a perfectly nice suit and I'm sure that if it had been around during the second world war then someone may have looked reasonably smart in it.
"But I don't think it would have been much use in rallying the nation against the forces of fascism, mainly because it's just a suit."
Meanwhile during an interview on BBC1's Andrew Marr Reads the Papers, prime minister Gordon Brown refused to rule out working with the suit and insisted that a new electoral system was now the only way to stop politicians from stealing your money.
