Britain’s new Prime Minister, Theresa Day, has been in the job just 24 hours and already London’s cheeky tabloid press is having a dig at her husband (and media in general).
Pictured outside ‘Number 10’ with her husband Philip May, Metro.co.uk resisted the urge to hail the achievements of the UK’s second-ever female PM choosing to celebrate Phil’s dress sense instead.
The piss-takey piece came with the headline, “Theresa May’s husband steals the show in sexy navy suit as he starts like as First Man” and read: “Theresa May became Britain’s new prime minister, but her husband’s big fashion moment stole the show.
“Stepping into the limelight as First Man, Philip May showcased a sexy navy suit with a flourish of pinstripe,” the article extolled.
“Round glasses perched on his nose accentuated his amazing bone structure – no doubt one of the assets he used to help him to bag his wife.”
It then rounded on poor “First Man” Phil’s shoes. “Philip elongated his pins with a pair of black brogues as he accompanied his wife to step over the threshold of their new home – 10 Downing Street.”
Philip May is a successful merchant banker in London who reportedly can’t stand the spotlight nor the press.
