Home Secs – shadow and disgraced
Ann Widdecombe, ex-shadow home secretary is rumoured to be going to be one of the contestants on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. In the buffoon role I guess. Meanwhile, in another part of that region where politics crashes and melds into celebrity culture (sometimes known as Lembit Land), the disgraced ex-home secretary Jacqui Smith is applying to be vice – chair of the BBC Trust. I dread to think what all this may portend but there must be a very worrying misalignment of celestial bodies somewhere among the constellations to cause this bizarre concatenation of forces.
