When to Ask Ann Widdecombe to Dance...

There's a cracking Daily Politico today with Ann Widdecombe HERE. She reveals ragtime music gets her up to dance, she is her own best friend, Jeremy Paxman is her favourite interviewer, Nick Robinson is her least favourite and George W Bush is the politician she most admires.

Other recent subjects for the Daily Politico include Johann Hari, Bob Spink, Nick Bourne AM and Stephen Pound. The full archive is HERE.

Paxman?

Must because of the spectacular humiliation he meted out on Michael Howard. 'Something of the night' has entered the political lexicon.

You are in desperate need of a sub-edit for Daily Politico.

'Nassar'

'Artic' (3 times, so it can't be a typo).

G W Bush??

Any admiration I had for Widdecombe has now vanished....

When I buy a newspaper or magazine I take for granted that there'll always be some contributors I'll absolutely loathe and some angles on stories I'll totally disagree with. When the tipping point has been reached and I loathe more than I like - as happened with the Guardian and the Spectator post-Boris - I'll change to another paper/magazine. The trouble with Total Politics is that you've started off with a tipping point. I would never have anything to do with a journal that featured input from Sami Shakrabatri and Denis McShane. I think you even give space to that world class irritant, Yasmin Alibi Brown. Who exactly are you trying to appeal to?

Ann Widdecombe's "something of the night" remark had nothing to do with Paxman. She said it in Parliament.

You anonynmous fool.

I never said Widdecombe's 'something of the night' had anything to do with Paxman. The inference was that Widdecome must love Paxman because he comprehensively humilated Howard, whom she clearly wished to see humiliated and exposed.

I could never stand her, especially because of her views on foxhunting, but she has gone up in my estimation.

Clearly, it was not.

Hint: don't try to do subtle. Or clever. It's so not you.

What this post doesn't tell you is that, although "Widdy" is a "big boned" girl, she could walk under a coffee table in a top hat. So unless you are under about 4Ft 6ins dancing with her could be a nightmare......

You really are a dimwit. You should keep your feeble-minded meanderings to yourself.
