Her Association President, Lord Sandy Bruce-Lockhart, suggested that she should run for London Mayor. Now there's a thought. Sadly Ann didn't seem very enamoured of the idea. I have to say, if she put her hat in the ring I suspect she'd walk it. She told me that if the post had Giuliani style powers, especially over the Police, she'd be at it like a rat at a trap. I have to say I don't see those powers being granted either under a Labour or a Tory government. It's a big issues and I have to say that none of the Tory candidates for London mayor I have interviewed for 18 Doughty Street have given very convincing answers on crime issues.

Ann Widdecombe for London Mayor?
I've just been out for a pleasant evening in Maidstone where Miss Widdecombe was celebrating her 20th anniversary as Member of Parliament. As part of the evening's entertainment we performed a shortended version of our 'Audience with Ann Widdecombe' theatre show. The other entertainment was provided by Maidstone Operatic Society who sung a number of songs, including one chosen by Ann herself - Music of the Night!
