Fifty shades of Theresa May: where the punishment fits the crime

PUBLISHED October 9, 2012

How can you spot a secret cabinet dominatrix? Why, by her semantics of course. This is why Theresa May's penchant for leatherette trousers, red patent heels, and violent shoulder padding has been a red herring when it comes to revealing her S&M tendencies. As a former domme myself, I have always suspected her poor sartorial choices were strategic signifiers designed to detract from May's punitive policy leanings. And now, the announcement of her "menu" of punishments for victims to choose from seems to have outed her once and for all.
