A Virginal, Dancing, Fairy Godmother

Every Tuesday evening a team meeting takes place in my office with regard to the abortion/teenage pregnancy/adoption issues.  If we hit a wall and don’t know the answer to a question, we call aunty Ann Widdecombe on her mobile.

I don’t always like what she has to say because Ann and I aren’t in 100% agreement on some of the points, however, what she doesn’t know  isn’t worth knowing – especially when it comes to Parliamentary procedure.  And that is one of the problems today,  this place takes many years and a little more than an Erskine May to navigate and understand. Many of the elders have gone or died, the late Eric Forth being the most notable and therefore, having Ann on the end of a phone can be a blessing.

Without any prompting, Vanessa Feltz brought in a mention of Ann during our discussion on the Vanessa show and Vanessa’s description of Ann as a virgin who can dance surely has to stick? If it does, I will have my own variation, to me she will always be my virginal, dancing, fairy godmother.

The Vanessa show link for the next six days and our discussion is 12 minutes in
