Andrew Pierce wrote a wonderful piece about Ann in the Telegraph yesterday. She is such a character and the House of Commons will be much poorer for her absence. As some of you may know, she and I do a theatre show called AN AUDIENCE WITH ANN WIDDECOMBE, which we take to provincial theatres. We've done about 40 so far, I think. They always get good audiences and she's one of the few politicians who could do this. She's a politician of whom people often say: "I may not agree with her but at least she believes what she says".
I think it is fair to say that we will all miss her. Don't you think she'd look great in Ermine?
