Someone is now judging our politicians' fashion choices at Queen's Park
Provincial politics are so much more interesting when presented in the form of a snarky style blog, am I right?
At least 730 people have said "yaaas girl" (or at least "maybe, let's find out") to that question by clicking follow on a freshly-created Twitter account called Queen's Park Fashun.
QPfashun, as its called for short, describes itself as "an anonymous account celebrating the MPPs who turn lewks."

So who's behind ithe account? A bored party staffer? A sartorially savvy MPP? Ru Paul? Gossip Girl?
At this point, it's probably better that we don't know.
