  1. Ann Widdecombe was a guest on The Graham Norton Show last night. In response to his question about how she felt that she would be known for her dancing rather than her political career she responded (paraphrased) that he should not discount the idea that she can have many other memorable moments still to experience. Her life is far from over. I thought it was a great response.
