Monkeys in suits

THOMAS STUDLEY (Irish Examiner letters, June 30) bemoans the fact that the attire of our public figures is “flouting decorum” and is in “extremely bad taste.”

In coming to this conclusion, perhaps he had in mind the following advice given to Laertes by his father, Polonius: “For the apparel oft proclaims the man." (Hamlet).

While this seems to be the widely held view, I tend to disagree.

It is my view that if you put a suit on a monkey, he will still be a monkey.
