Baroness Oona King, former Bethnal Green and Bow MP and London Mayoral hopeful, will this year be a contestant on Dancing on Ice. Other contestants will include Keith Chegwin, Joe Pasquale and Pamela Anderson. Asked what her plan was, she said “I have no strategy! I just want to try and stay upright”. That sounds like a good place to start. Here’s Oona in her ice dancing garb:

    Thus are the mighty fallen.

    Showbiz beckons for another failed New Labourite

    • Not so sure about the ‘mighty’, Alan – I’d say Monkey had it right with the ‘light entertainment’ allusion.

  • Chilbaldi

    Given up on politics then?

  • Dave Postles

    I suppose that the jungle has been done (to death).

    Oona has been skating on thin ice for some time and probably needs the money. On a positive note we might say that London’s loss is light entertainment’s gain and at least she’s not cashing in by appearing on a TV show while still a Member of Parliament like the dreadful Nadine Dorries, who opined that unemployed citizens found tweeting on Twitter rather than actively seeking work 24/7 should have their benefits stopped as a punishment. Nice lady… NOT! Eeek.

    Baroness?!
    Was that in return for her supporting the Iraq invasion?

      Eh, I’m not a huge fan of her but at least she was previously elected as an MP. As opposed to the likes of Catherine Ashton or Sayeeda Warsi.

      She looks really good in that promo pic.

    Well it did wonders for Vince Cable.

    Oh wait, no it didn’t.
