I harbour a deep rooted fascination with Ann Widdecombe. I disgree, quite passionately, with much - if not all - of what she says but I love her nonetheless.
'Why?' you are probably asking. She is a straight-talking, no-nonsense politician who is quite clear about what she believes in.
I had to laugh when I read that she had shamed two 'fathers for justice protesters' down from the precipices of Westminster Abbey with the admonishment they were making old people stand on the green rather than enter the church for their Good Friday service. Faced with Widdecombe the protesters didn't stand a chance. I'm just sad it wasn't filmed.
