Christmas sweaters – a fashion disaster we can all enjoy

Twice a year there are meetings between Suffolk MPs and the county council’s cabinet to discuss issues of concern – and this winter’s meeting coincided with Christmas Sweater Day last week.

All turned up in garish jumpers – except, of course Matt Hancock who didn’t join in with the frippery!

It was the same day that we took part in the event in our own office with my own slightly restrained sweater (well, there’s no point in me pretending to be an elf!).

The difference is, of course, that I kept my sweater with me all day – even though this mild weather did prompt me to revert to shirt sleeves for much of my time in the office.

I’m told that the councillors and MPs couldn’t wait to whip off their sweaters as soon as the camera had disappeared. I can’t think why, can you?
