I was on a slow train to London and picked up a copy of the free Metro paper to pass the time. There was Widdy as subject of the Metro 60 second interview.
Straight-talking Ann answered questions on how to stop British-born Muslims becoming terrorists, how she would have reacted to the recent airport security scare if she were still Home Secretary...and that goat.
There’s a picture of you adopting goats on your website. What’s that about?Ann:
A goat sanctuary has opened in my constituency. They’ve got about 60 goats who have been abandoned. I thought it was a jolly good initiative and adopted a couple of goats; I send the odd cheque to support them.
Jolly Good Ann.
The next question was does she plan to retire.
Ann replied that if the current Parliament is a normal length, it's "quite likely" that she'll go at the end of it and concentrate on her writing.
There comes a time when doing shows such as Countdown...is more enjoyable than Question Time.
Parliament without larger than life Ann Widdecombe and Clare Short just won't be the same...
