Just watched, as my DGS loves it , and who should pop up but Anne Widdecombe , who seems to be modeling herself on Anne Robinson . I suppose she can"t face being out of public eye , what with come dancing , but give it up girl to my mind anyway you are just a bossy old spinster, with about as much personality as a carrot grin

I don't agree, Nonu. I think she's a very intelligent and feisty woman who was never appreciated enough during her time in government. I like her.

She would have been great as PM!

Nonu Wed 15-Aug-12 19:43:46

Well DH who had dealings with her said she was pretty ghastly , but may be others know better BIG smile

She always was her own woman, I'll give her that.

Nonu Wed 15-Aug-12 19:52:17

Perhaps she wasn"t "appreciated enough " as she was such a strident old spinster SWEET smile

Yes, dear....

The woman who should have been PM was Barbara Castle sad....

OOOO Anagram if I thought u meant that my heart would beat that much faster x

Shirley Williams is the woman I admire, though I admit Barbara Castle had a lot going for her.

Widdecombe couldn"t hold a candle to Thatcher !!!!!!!!

I only know AW from her actions as an MP and her TV appearances. I have not been impressed by what know. I feel she is a strident 'know it all' who was not very empathetic to anyone who did not follow 'her rules'. I think Barbara Castle was a better MP and politician.
