Or put another way, the 1960's called and asked if they could have their headline back hmm

1950's not 60's !!

What ever does the Daily Mail think of the type of person who reads it's paper. I would feel jolly insulted, never mind the sheer sexism.

I think it's fairly typical of the DM unfortunately.

Sarah Vine's career going the way of her husband? I hope!

What a ridiculous headline. Even DM readers must be appalled by this one.

Had a good 10 minute titter reading Twitter posts Grannyknot grin. There are some brilliantly witty ones on there. DM getting a lot of free publicity over this which is probably making them extremely pleased. When you think about it, It is quite clever getting a woman to write such a piece about another woman.

Gets them sales, and free publicity.

I'm not really a fan of Theresa May but this is a terrible insult to the Prime Minister of our country. I suspect that the Daily Mail would be "furious" (as they often are) if another country used this photo and headline on their newspaper front page.

I heard Sarah Vine interviewed on the World at One. She put on a sound fact but in fact, I thought, sounded a tad uncomfortable, as well she should have.

Sadly, as roses said - it's great free publicity for the Daily Wail. That's why they do this kind of thing. It causes a curfuffle and generates hours of free publicity.

It's also a fairly disgusting way to treat two senior politicians. Radio 4 has been running a piece about male politicians and their legs, which has been quite entertaining but also of course, adding to the free publicity for the DW.

roses are you critical of the DM on this issue? This is just another example of the utter disgrace that this 'paper' is. SV joins her colleague KH in embracing misogyny and denigrating women and of course she's married to that lying, stupid , opportunistic MG.What a shower they all are.

In a word....yes
