I've thought about entering politics, and had an opportunity to do so, but I'd be terrible at it. As shown in my Unsolicited Communications Act, I don't like being pestered, so I wouldn't like pestering other people whilst campaigning (though the Act does not actually prohibit political campaigning). Plus, I'd want to help everyone. All the time. And that, unfortunately, is just not possible.
I'll stick to political comment, and would like to go into academia.
Don't think I'll ever run for parliament - I'm from one of the bluest Tory strongholds in the country and I disagree with parachuting people into safe seats. It's the civil service for me!
Did anyone see PMQs today? One of the most one-sided of the parliament, massive lift for Miliband.
