Political correspondent

POSTED: Thursday 7 April, 1400BST

Seek out Tara Hamilton-Miller. Her shoes brighten up Conservative Headquarters and she'll be wearing a different pair every day until the election's over.

When Tony Blair met the Queen, she slipped into silver glitter boots. Yesterday it was calf-high green suede with red buttons. Today's stylish offering were in white with black spots and red edging.

Tomorrow I'm told to expect purple suede with diamante, as she battles with Theresa May (the shadow minister for the family who once famously wore leopard print kitten-heeled shoes) to be the Imelda Marcos of the Conservative Party.

If any open toed shoes are worn, please be sure to report whether she has had a recent pedicure so we can be assured that her toes look equally fantastic.

In keeping with Michael Howard's commitment that the Conservatives will only make promises they will keep, if Tara wears the same pair of shoes twice during the campaign she will be sacked.

The Conservatives promise to curb "waste", in order to make their sums add up. This lady at their HQ proceeds to wear a new pair of shoes every day. Talk about mixed messages!
