Poisonous old bat, rejuvenated from dancing, weighs in on shit she should STFU about. Story at 11.

Former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe has criticised the ‘coming out’ of deputy speaker of the House of Commons, Nigel Evans. She said that being gay “is not an issue” and said that MPs should not disclose details of their private lives.

Miss Widdecombe, a former contestant on Strictly Come Dancing told The Sunday Times that she would not be backing the launch on Monday of ParliOut, the first LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) network for the Parliamentary staff, MPs and Lords.

Asked if she supported the group, she said: “No I do not. MPs are supposed to be there to help other people not to go whingeing on their own behalf. I cannot understand the modern day emphasis and fascination and obsession with people’s private lives.

She added: “We have had gay MPs since we’ve had MPs…we’ve had gay everythings. It is not an issue and what we are doing now is encouraging your profession to go into everybody’s private lives.”

Oh shut up, Widdy. It's easy for you to say being gay "is not an issue". Also, why are the views of this ex-MP still relevant? Because she made a tit of herself on TV for a few weeks?
