Politician gives the perfect response to journalist's tweet

Sky News journalist David Blevins probably thought that his joke tweet about three women, including Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Northern Ireland First Minister Arlene Foster and UTV journalist Tracy Magee, wearing the same suit would be harmless enough and would go virtually unnoticed. Perhaps he thought that it might attract the odd like or retweet but we seriously doubt he expected a response from any of the women in question.

How wrong he was.

Nicola Sturgeon picked up on the tweet and had the perfect response.

Our own Aodhan O'Riordan, was bemused as to how he ended up becoming entwined in the exchange.

But Sturgeon was quick to let him know that it was nothing personal. And that he has a lovely suit.


Blevins was amused to have caused an International incident.

But also relieved that Sturgeon saw the funny side of his remark.

Politics, bloody hell.
