Amber Rudd is not having a good few weeks thanks to her department’s shaky handling of the Windrush scandal. Now she’s under fire on another front: shoes. The Financial Times reports that the Home Secretary told guests at a private business dinner this month that the post-Brexit registration scheme for EU nationals will be ‘as easy to use as setting up an online account at LK Bennett’.

Alas, L K Bennett does not pass the ‘know the price of a pint of milk and you are in touch with the people’ test – given that the pricy fashion chain sells shoes for over £200.

But then again, what else would one expect from the ‘aristocracy coordinator’ of Four Weddings and a Funeral?
