While many discuss who best represented their party position on the economy, or on immigration, a definitive view on who had the best socks has been hard to come by. Until now.
Miliband – two odd socks, one that said “Tuesday” and one that said “Sunday”, despite it being Thursday. Both socks said “right” and he needed help from his wife to put them on.
Clegg – promised in the run up to the debate that he would wear socks, even went into great detail about exactly what type of socks they would be. Then turned up without any.
Farage – Nige wore the type of socks that you would wear, because he’s just like you. In fact, they are your socks. Remember? You lent them to him that night he crashed on your sofa when a quick beer after work accidentally turned into a messy all-nighter and he passed out there with a kebab in his hand. Are you free on Sunday? If you are Nige might give you a call to go for a curry and a couple of pints.
That woman from the Welsh party – didn’t wear any socks because she didn’t have time to put them on in her hurry to get to the studio before somebody realised she and her party were completely irrelevant and uninvited her.
Green party woman – no socks. Hippy.
Nicola Sturgeon – was going to wear traditional socks until she realised that they represent and propagate the centuries old union between foot and ankle. Instead wore little pop socks that covered her foot and only her foot, completely independent of the ankle and with no tangible link to, or reliance on the ankle at all. Funded by north sea oil.
David Cameron – wore socks made out of solid gold that had been jointly donated to him by a number of business leaders and HSBC, as a thank you gift for the wonderful job he is doing in clamping down on corporate tax evasion.
