British Member of Parliament is banned from the Prime Minister’s residence after criticising her expensive leather trousers

Nicky Morgan who represents Loughborough constituency in the British
parliament drew the ire of political bigwigs when she publicly
criticised the Prime Minister, Theresa May for wearing £995 leather
trousers. She was banned from attending a meeting at the Prime
Minister’s official residence by Mrs May’s joint chief of staff Fiona
Hill.

It all began when Morgan and and fellow MP Alistair Burt met Hill
at Downing Street and were subsequently invited to table their cases
before the Prime Minister herself at a later date.
The ‘Trousergate’ row
as it has come to be known kicked off in earnest  when Ms Morgan said:
‘My barometer is always, ‘How am I going to explain this in Loughborough
market?’,’ adding that Mrs May’s trousers had ‘been noticed and
discussed’ in party circles. She added: ‘I’ve never spent that much on
anything – apart from my wedding dress.’

This ticked off Ms Hill who
fired off a curt text to Alistair Burt telling him: ‘Don’t bring that
woman to Downing Street again’. Ms Morgan was infuriated that rather
than issue the rebuke directly, Ms Hill went through a man. The
Loughborough MP replied with an equally sharp text asserting her
independence as a woman and MP who doesn’t need to hang onto a man’s arm
to see the Prime Minister.  

Three days later,
No 10 Downing Street told Morgan formally her name had been axed from
the list of MPs invited to see May on at the scheduled date. Aside the
bizarre trousergate row, one can see from the infographic below that
Theresa May does have a rather expensive fashion taste.
