As part of his uniform, M&S have issued Ali with a clip-on tie. Bang goes their reputation for quality.
I had a cup of tea at a Birmingham police station when I was a student. A policeman there explained they had clip on ties so that if someone grabbed it they couldn't be strangled.
So maybe M&S worry their staff might be grabbed by some Middle Englander enraged by too much Christmas shopping, desperate to find the M&S christmas underwear section? [added 7th Nov 2002]
