Infra dignitatem, how sad to see a good person debased by a culture of sensationalism.

Oh for Chrissake lighten up Tony!! The whole country is loving it - and her! Bet she wins too.

Sorry, I'm with Tony on this - I recall Miss W when she was an impressive politician, and I find this kind of vulgarity demeaning to her in the extreme.

sjm - She is now retired, what is wrong with her having a bit of fun and getting paid for it, it is a family show after all so hardly anything to be ashamed of. Some people on here can occassionally be the stuffiest side of the party at its worst!

I think - with respect - you're being a little pompous here, sjm! I'm with Annabel too on this one. OK - it is the most sexless version of the Tango I have ever seen in my life - rather like Anton dancing with a little pink teddy bear - but Bless Her, she's loving it and good luck to her!!

I have to say that I thought that Ann Widdecombe looked quite beautiful as she slowly emerged 'weightless' on her thingy. I don't suppose she 'felt' beautiful!
Also, whatever Anton actually thinks about performing with a little dumpling, that does not have a great sense of rhythm, I think it is probably enhancing his 'image' no end! He has never been one of my favorites, but he has tackled his mission with great gusto, and consideration. It is very entertaining!

I also disagree with this nonsense about Ann debasing herself. Firstly she refused to do this until she retired and I would have thought this is an inspiration for all of us for retirement - use it to try and learn new things and tackle them with gusto whether we are naturally good at them (or built for them) or not. She is not in a jungle eating bugs. Secondly, she is sort of using political strategy here - she is never going to top the score with the judges so she use to go down the entertainment route to play to the public half of the vote. Personally, I think its a good thing for a former poltician to show she does not take herself too seriously and is prepared to have fun. She is maintaining her dignity - showing some leg in a backless dress would have gone too far. And isn't nice to see a tory receiving rave public support on an entertainment show!

SJM - "Pompous". Try meeting her in the flesh...

Oh for... Lighten up. The woman's done her bit and RETIRED. She owes the party nothing. Quite the reverse. Go, Widdy!

The left love to characterise Conservatives as soulless. In merrily and knowingly making a fool of herself on live television every week Ann Widdecombe is single-handedly proving them wrong. Ann, you're my favourite!

Why should the Lefties have all the fun in life just because the Conservative party contains a few snobbish bores? To me this just shows the party contains many strands and a big tent to accommodate all tastes.
What I did find vulgar this week was the back slapping, self congratulatory way the spending review was concluded.
Anne Widdicombe, after giving her working career to serious public service can let her hair down now (or have it up in a fantastic up-do - this style looked great on her) and have a bit of fun, she is improving every week and I'll just say tango hand Anne and you can hold the hand lower on the man's shoulder blade in a tango which would be more comfortable for you. I agree with Patsy about Anton.

I have, when she was Shadowing Health, I liked her very much. Now I think she is behaving like a twit.
October 24, 2010 at 05:30 PM
I meant YOU are pompous!!! Ann's simply wonderful.
London Tory |

... and doesn;t her hair look great? I think she's really trying her best and that is what Strictly is all about...
and Len obviously agreed!!
go Ms Widdecombe!

Absolutely marvellous. At last we have found a replacement for the Harrier and the proposed cuts to the RAF will now not seem quite so severe.
