"Shadow City minister praised for showing 'so much cleavage' on TV"

From The Evening Standard:

Labour's shadow City minister has said she is "trying not to feel too flattered" after receiving a letter in the post praising her for showing "so much cleavage" during a television debate.

The missive was sent to Alison McGovern following a Channel 4 News debate on June 10, and was posted to twitter by the MP yesterday. McGovern appeared on the news programme opposite Conservative MP Kwasi Kwarteng, to discuss George Osborne's proposed bill obliging governments to run a surplus on their budgets while the economy was booming.

The letter, signed only "JG Hunter", does not reveal the gender of the writer, who claims to be a fellow Labour Party member.

The letter said:

"I'm not sure why you felt it necessary to demonstrate your cleavage so obviously on TV. I can only imagine that it was deliberate in order to attract attention to yourself as the Labour spokesperson or distract male observers from the topic under discussion?

Either way, I'd like to express my thanks for giving everybody something nice to look at."

I have to say that, while I disagree with her politically, she is one of the most attractive female MPs. And at least she's supporting Liz Kendall.

C, you say that as if it were a good thing..?
