Tory MPs have began voting to choose a new leader, and in turn our new prime minster. Among the candidates are Theresa May, Liam Fox, Michael Gove, Stephen Crabb and Andrea Leadsom. With Brexit, David Cameron stepping down, Boris Johnson ducking out of the race and Farage stepping down from UKIP leadership, the recent political climate has been- to put it delicately- a sh*t storm. 

Who would we want as PM if we could pick anyone? Who would rule if we lived in an alternative reality, say Narnia? Here's a list of who we would actually like as the British Prime Minister (in no particular order)... 

1) Russel Howard  

He's been a dark horse in comedy; despite being around for years many didn't pay too much attention to Howard. However, as of recent his hysterically accurate quips on current affairs have made him into a nation treasure.  

Some of his best quotes include this beauty "Women still have to pay 5% VAT on tampons because they are a luxury item. A luxury? THEY'RE TAMPONS. They're not Ferrero Rocher"- well said! 

2) Adele  

Adele, mainly because she's hilarious, mouthy, down to earth and someone everyone would want to have a cuppa with. Adele, on top of having an incredible voice, is also the perfect poster child for weird British customs and explaining them, she could make quite the diplomat. 

Like the time she commented on this "Americans are always mortified when I tell them this, but in England, it's a tradition to put your plaques and photographs and awards and gold records and stuff in your bathroom. I don't know why". Granted she probably displays oscars in her bathroom, not 'participation' awards from year 7 football.

 3) Professor Minerva McGonagall  

McGonagall is loyal, unflappable, moral and maybe the most underrated character in Harry Potter. If she was PM you'd be reassured that she'd never go back on her word or drop out when the going gets tough.  

This is the kind of telling off any MP would listen to "The house of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries. I will not have you, in one night, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons". That alliteration though. 

4) Lily Allen 

Ok, she'd put her foot in it all the time. But this is make belief, so in parallel universe Lily would be a great PM. I mean yesterday she filmed Liam Fox, Murdoch and Farage 'Breaking bread' whilst attending a garden party. With her as PM you wouldn't have to worry about the public not being kept in the loop.  

5) Michelle Obama  

This quote says it all "You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own". 

6) Jack Whitehall 

Anyone who wrote Bad Education and Fresh Meat should be a strong contender for PM in my eyes.  

Or anyone who says brilliant things like this "I find adverts at the moment particularly annoying, like the banking adverts because they're trying to portray bankers as nice people..you walk up to the till, it's like 'oooh, how was your holiday?' I went camping. 'Ooh, why did you go camping?'. Because you lost all of my money".  

7) Gandalf 

You'd just trust him, wouldn't you? Plus he says very deep things like this, all the time, "Some believe that it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what i've found. I found that it is the small things. Every day deeds by ordinary fold that keeps the darkness at bay".   

8) Sean Lock 

Mainly just because this comedian would come up with the best conspiracies and plans, he may not be the sensible choice, but he'd certainly provide the LOLs. 

This theory of his, for example, is a gem "I'll tell you one thing, I think NASA killed Michael Jackson. He died the same week as the anniversary of the initial moon landing, of the first moonwalk. They resent the fact that any time anyone puts 'moonwalk' into Google or anything it comes up with him sliding backwards with a hat on. And not the billions they spent going up to do a moonwalk. They hated that, and they killed him".   

9) Captain Jack Sparrow 

From the surface he doesn't exactly look like a typical PM, but his attitudes on life are actually pretty spot on.  For instance "The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude to the problem. Do you understand?" or "Why fight when you can negotiate?". Can't you just see those as great campaign slogans?!  

10) JK Rowling  

National treasure, twitter legend, creator of Harry Potter. Do we really need to say any more? No. We'll leave you with this from the woman herself "Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve".

Today Britain voted to leave the EU, after the Leave campaign won 52% of the vote. The vote has, understandably, caused a massive reaction from the public. With David Cameron stepping down in October, the uncertainty of what the consequences will be for the economy/NHS/everything. 


It is a momentous decision, and while Britain's opinion has been divided, the majority of the fashion industry were strongly hoping for the remain campaign to win. A survey conducted by the British Fashion Council pre-vote showed that 90% of UK designers wanted to remain in the European Union over fears of an end to free trade, a weakening in the value of the pound and restrictions on foreign talent being able to attend British fashion institutions.

Vivienne Westwood, Alexa Chung, Lily Allen and many more have all passionately reacted. Scroll through our gallery above to read some of the fashion industry's reactions as seen on social media...

Ce dimanche 21 février, Jude Law a mené un groupe de célébrités (dont Tom Odell et Tom Stoppard) dans un camp de réfugiés à Calais.


Abritant plus de 4000 hommes, femmes et enfants, le camp, surnommé la “Jungle” pourrait être détruit par les autorités françaises.

L’acteur anglais se dit choqué de voir des enfants vivre dans de telles conditions, à quelques heures seulement de Londres et Paris. 

Il a lu une lettre ouverte à David Cameron, signée par 145 célébrités (Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch) demandant refuge en Angleterre pour les enfants isolés du camp. 

Et si certains admirent la prise de parole de l’acteur, d’autres dénoncent son manque d’action et de connaissances réelles sur le problème.

Fresh from PMQs, Jeremy Corbyn is shaking things up as much on the fashion stage as the political arena. 


With his unique normcore-infused style, he’s bringing the socialist paradise one step closer with a low-key selection of black caps, muted shirts, and surprisingly street casual ware- Ties, cufflinks, and ironing are out. 

For Corbyn, it’s all about corduroy, with a cheeky vest peeking out from under a plain shirt. Shabby chic meets radical chic is most definitely the IN THING. 

With a population tired of the same smooth-chinned, Armani suit-wearing politicians, we have to ask: will the #normcorbyn style catch on? Will other politicians be keen to jump aboard the bandwagon? 

Picture the scene - David Cameron in Parliament with two weeks beard-growth and a beige sports jacket. On his left, George Osbourne in a cotton short-sleeved shirt, shorts, socks pulled all the way up, and trainers. 

Yes, beige has hit the stage. A fashion earthquake not seen since Liam Gallagher inspired a generation of home counties youth to dress in Parkas and denim. 

As winter approaches, we can be sure to be seeing more of a #normcorbyn’s jumpers. Be sure to see them first, here on Shopcade.

We love Dame Vivienne Westwood. 


Currently trending for storming The Prime Minister's constituency by driving a tank, yes A TANK to David Cameron's front door, she is the ultimate rebel. 

Why, we hear you cry was she driving the tank? To protest fracking of course! And what a way to protest. Despite Cameron not being home, we think she has definitely made her point. 

Watch the video above to see more from Dame Viv and the fracking protest.

So the polls were wrong... no hung parliament, no late labour surge and crucially no need (at least that's the way it's looking right now) for a new coalition. Yep, David Cameron is set to be our PM for another five years,


Take what you will from that, but away all from the endless campaigning, sometimes dull election rallies, there has been one secret weapon that the Tories used spectacularly well.. Sam Cam. AKA David's wife.

A hit with female voters and fashionistas alike, Samantha has the pulling power like no other. Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg's wives didn't stand a chance when pitted against this fashion force.

To dial it down a touch from the hardcore politics, Sam's nailed it with every single outfit this election campaign (crisp white shirts, flared skirts, wrap dresses galore) and even her voting dress yesterday had a 'message' behind it. 

Comparing it to the dress worn by Mrs Banks in Mary Poppins, it's a clever and timely reminder about a woman's right to vote. Well played there, Mrs C.

With all eyes now turning to that all important PM speech, there's only one thing on our mind... what will Sam be wearing? 

Mark the election in your own way by shopping our SamCam style essentials below & scroll through above to see our fave fashion moments of this campaign.

Not particularly knowledgable about UK elections, but I definitely see a "Claire Underwood" style of dressing up here...
