Yes you Tories who are not even worthy to trim Sir Bernard Inghams eyebrows, take note!

One can always hope that when those single mothers get their free beauty treatments that someone does indeed feed the hair dye to them as an ice-cream topping.

No-one deserves something for nothing - not single mothers, not anyone.

Have the government enlisted the help of Edward de Bono again?

Ooh, that Widdecombe is a bitter woman - just because she had to pay for her blonde makeover....

What does an old man like Widdecombe know about young women?

And there it is!

Presumably Ezra is on the Left and it is jolly inconvenient to most lefties that the Tories have so many forthright women who are not afraid to speak their own views (quite unlike the Blair Babes, incidentally)

It's why Spitting Image satirised Thatcher in a suit and tie and why they call Widdecombe a man. They would never do that to Mo Mowlem or Gwyneth Dunwoody, would they?

By all means attack AW for what she says (although in my view she is sound on pretty much everything except abortion) but if you have to resort to calling her a man it says more about the quality of your argument than hers!

Anne Widdecombe used to be an incredibly horny strumpet. I have pictures of her up in my toilet. Actualy, she still is, if you can imagine her in a John Prescott sort of way...
