Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson said she has had lots of "unsolicited advice" during the election campaign – including a tip to wear lower cut tops.
Ms Swinson said she has had people telling her to speak and dress differently, but said she will be "true to myself".
The Lib Dem leader said the comments were not from within her own team.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Ms Swinson said: "I get lots and lots of unsolicited advice. I'm not short of people telling me that I should speak differently or wear different shoes or wear different earrings.


I am who I am and some people will not like the way that I dress or talk or my accent or whatever
Jo Swinson
"Or in one case, somebody suggested that I should wear lower cut tops.
"I mean as if that's going to be the thing that changes the poll rating. I'm not short of unsolicited advice."

Asked if the "advice" was coming from her own election team, she said: "Not in my election team, but as I say, I do get these gems of advice that come to me.
"I am who I am and some people will not like the way that I dress or talk or my accent or whatever.
"And fine. In a sense that's their problem. I'm going to stand here, do the best that I can arguing for the positions that I believe in because I do believe our politics can be better.
"And I'm going to be true to myself in the way I do it."

Good on her, for remaining true to herself.

Maybe Nikkola gives Pedro something to stir his porridge with in the morning? But seriously, no chance of her gettin 'em out, she doesn't even wear a bra - she's got a string vest.

A dried up couple her and her wee man, she doesn't have a bad week, she just has the occasional fall of soot. And he doesn't have any seminal fluid, just a wee puff of stoor when he reaches his big moment.

Think this just shows again the issues that women still face in trying to do anything that involves public scrutiny.

A girl I was at school with is standing as the MP candidate in this election. The **** she gets from people is just horrendous. Her opponent just gets ‘the usual’ kind of crap based on his record in office and current campaign promises. But she’s been sent all kinds of actual nonsense from ‘should just stay at home and cook for your family’ to people trawling her Facebook for old holiday photos of her in a swimsuit and putting them in the comments section of her public page (albeit removed quickly but still...)
