    Re: "Whoever decided that clothes can only be worn once?"

    The person is suggesting it's stupid to wonder that anyone, even a prime minister, should wear the same shirt more than once. Just about everyone else in the world wears their items of clothing more than once before discarding them, so why is it "newsworthy" to comment on the fact that he's wearing the same shirt in more than once picture.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
