People don't take me seriously? Well, you are Louise Mensch...

David Cameron did it, Boris Johnson did it and now it seems that Louise Mensch has jumped on the band wagon. Now, I'm not saying I think women can't be taken seriously if they look great and my she does look good, but anyone who claims to 'hero worship' and that to be his wife is 'the greatest honour' their husband is hardly going to impress me. Yes, I am of course referring to GQ's latest leather skirt clad cover star...

Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased that she puts such a great emphasis on veteran's welfare, I think that's really important. More needs to be done for those who've worked to protect us and risked their lives for us, they get pretty much forgotten about and I think that's appalling. So, as you can imagine, I was reading an article about her thinking 'maybe I've misjudged her', maybe it would be good if she went from backbench to a bit closer to the front row! 

 I follow her on Twitter and she manages to make some excellent points in under 140 characters, However in the interview, the number was upped considerably and she went on to say how she'd rather have one of her books made into a movie than become a cabinet minister. I'm not sure if anyone else is familiar with the Oxford graduate's books, but they include 'Career Girls' which to this day I'm still confused about how it came into the hands of my school library (albeit in the 14 and over section) as the plot concerns two women at the top of their game. Except they only got there by having sex. A lot of sex... Which is described very graphically, at least for the first 150 pages, which is where, I'm afraid to say I gave up in favour of something a little less 'word porny'. It also makes me question her dedication to politics, I'm no Cameron fan, but at least he's dedicated to his job, I know he won't just get up and leave as soon as something more glamorous comes his way.

I just wish she could take her career a bit more seriously and stop bringing up her appearance, she's mentioned Theresa May's kitten heels more than May herself! How are women supposed to be breaking this glass ceiling if she's making a deal about how gorgeous she is (she is beautiful) and how nobody takes her seriously for it. If she carried on regardless then maybe we'd stop this fixation with her face and listen to her ideas...
