I think we can all agree that we won't be taking sartorial advice from Gordon Brown any time soon. But for GQ to name Brown the worst-dressed man of the year seems rather excessive.
That's until you remember that the magazine's editor, Dylan Jones, is the man responsible for Cameron on Cameron, a hagiographic collection of interviews with the Tory leader.
Jones (who bears a remarkable resemblance to Colonel Fawn, the author of Dave on Dave) is releasing an updated paperback version of the book this week.
For the record, Cameron, previously named Britain's most influential man by GQ, appears at number eight in the best-dressed list, just ahead of David Beckham.
The BBC's report didn't deem Jones's book relevant to the story, but here at The Staggers we think the two might just be related.
