Wow, that seems like a silly thing to say. I like the look of tweed, and I'm sure it is very practical for lots of different people.

I'm shocked that she would say these things, especially in her position. She must be one of those people who go from car to house to work. I would love some Harris Tweed to walk my dog in.

I think that she should have to wait for a bus for an hour on a cold and rainy winter afternoon surrounded by every-day people wearing their tweeds.

Clearly she has not seen the wonderful, sexy tweed corsets that I have come across!

I cherish my long Harris Tweed coat. It keeps me warm and dry in our crazy Canadian winters. And I always get compliments for it. I was lucky enough to find it in a charity shop. The inside lining is threadbare (the coat is obviously of a certain vintage), but the outside is still in pristine condition. That just shows how durable and well made Harris Tweed fabric is. Who wouldn't want to have garments that are that well made? Silly woman!

Judging by her comments in the article, Roseanna Cunningham does not need to wear tweed to be a laughing stock. Why is she denigrating a successful Scottish export?
