Promise kept!

By Guto Harri
Political correspondent

POSTED: Friday 6 May, 0440BST

One campaign promise has already been kept.

As I reported here nearly a month ago, Tory campaign worker Tara Hamilton-Miller promised to wear a different pair of shoes for each day during the campaign. She has achieved her goal, keeping her word tonight by sporting a pair of golden kitten heels and a fabulous Grecian dress.

Yet another example of Tory frivolous self-interest. As a student, there's no way I could afford thirty-odd pairs of shoes, nor could the majority of people I know. If that's what the Tories spend their money on, perhaps they're being paid too much.
Christine, Oxford/Dublin

Congratulations to Tara! Just highlights some of the brilliant creativity and originality that has gone into an excellent Conservative campaign. The Tories emphasise that they stand for freedom of the individual over the state's powers - I can't think of a better way to illustrate this in a lighthearted way! It's surely only a matter of time before Blair's over-zealous nanny state regulates what type of shoes we're allowed to wear. And how can anyone seriously take offence at a personal decision on what she wears to work each day ?
Charles, London

Perhaps Tara can give Ruth Kelly some hints. If I see her wearing that baggy brown trouser suit just one more time!
Helen, Leeds

Maybe she had a message for Tony Blair, borrowed from Nancy Sinatra, if you remember the lyrics: "These Boots Were Made For Walkin' by Nancy Sinatra album: Boots (1995),You Go-Go Girl
You keep saying you've got something for me. something you call love, but confess. You've been a messin' where you shouldn't have been a messin' and now someone else is gettin' all your best. These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you."
Lloyd, Manchester , England

What a wonderful way to get the female vote, I dip my hat to her.
Bob, Leeds

I suppose its better than sporting the Emperors New clothes. Perhaps....
Ben, Kenilworth

What's your middle name Tara, Imelda?
Graham Boucher, Pencoed, Bridgend
