    Star Wars shoes row: MP's scathing letter on Commons headed paper to shop after special heels sell out before she can buy some
    Angela Rayner, the Ashton-under-Lyne MP, wrote an angry note to the head office and shop after she thought she was on a pre-order list, but didn't get the shoes when they went on sale

    Irregular Choice Star Wars R2-D2 shoes
    An MP used House of Commons letter headed paper to complain about not being able to purchase a pair of Star Wars shoes.

    Ashton-under-Lyne MP Angela Rayner MP, 35, vented her frustration over a pair of £195 R2-D2 heels when their makers launched the popular shoes last week.








    The Irregular Choice Star Wars range saw fans queuing up outside shops to get shoes from the coveted collection, but the MP missed out.

    The upset MP wrote a strongly-worded letter of complaint on House of Commons note-paper, saying: “I have only ever brought your shoes and I am loathed to do so again, or recommend your shoes to others. I am writing to let you know that treating customers in that way will only cost you more in the long term.”

    Daniel Theophanides, 32, head of retail at Brighton-based Irregular Choice, said he was ‘personally very shocked by the complaint’, adding: “It was the wording of the complaint on House of Commons headed paper. One was addressed to head office and the other was sent to the shop in Brighton.

    “The store manager saw it and that wasn’t nice, it was cruel. I wouldn’t dream of writing a letter of complaint on company headed paper.”
    >
    He insisted the MP mistakenly believed she was on a pre-order list but in fact the shoes were only available to people who turned up at their shops.

    He said: “There was a queue outside every single one of our five stores in the UK on Carnaby Street and Camden in London and in Brighton, Leicester and Norwich.”





    He said he called her to say he was ‘sorry she missed out’ but did not get a chance to offer her a pair he had sourced from China as she ‘hung up’.

    The MP tweeted about the incident, writing: “Shame they sold my pair after I waited months on their list & been a customer 4 years. Poor customer service.”

    She told the M.E.N. in a statement: “There appears to have been a breakdown in communications with the company, which is regrettable.”

    She added: “My complaint was about the poor level of customer service and the attitude of a member of staff, who appears to be seeking headlines in tabloid newspapers rather than concentrating on providing a decent service to customers.”

    Her office pointed out rules permitted ‘modest use of’ House of Commons stationery for personal correspondence.

    Thanks for bringing this very important issue to our attention.

    I bet she's already got a pair of shoes.

    God that Raynor woman is useless, struggles to string a coherent sentence together! The Tories might be scum but she obviously isnt bright enough to choose her words more wisely. Seriously, the class of politician in this country is non league level!

    I dunno Bob, she came from humble beginnings, state educated, left school with no qualifications, history of work in social care and an ex-trade union rep.
    I know she probably doesn’t suit some of the new liberals on here and their new vision of the Labour Party….however I can’t help but have some admiration for her.
    She’s done no worse in her speech than legends like Dennis Skinner said, albeit with less humour.

    She may appeal to some but thats the problem with the labour party at the moment, appeal to some, not to others who are usually traditional supporters.

    But I would think she has more appeal to the traditional Labour support in the North, than the likes of Starmer .

    Give it a rest for ****'s sake, Stainesy. New ****ing liberals!

    I rather like her too, but then you think I'm middle-class so not entitled to an opinion.

    Plus there are lists of quotes from Johnson where he is being racist, homophobic and misogynist, as she says. But he’s a rich, expensively educated bloke and she’s a normal woman from an ordinary background, a massive disadvantage to being listened to. Good luck to her, at least she’s talking about her enemy rather than internal Labour Party bollocks.

    When Aneurin Bevan described Tories as ‘lower than vermin’ was we referring to Tory MPs, party members, or voters? I genuinely don’t know and would like to.

    Starmer is a ****ing liability.

    Sorry for my assumed class background.
