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:

      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.

    Unite donate extra £1 million to Labour’s election war chest

    Unite the Union have pledged an extra £1 million to Labour’s election campaign today. It is a huge boost for Miliband on the first day of the short campaign, following an assured performance in last night’s leaders’ interviews. This brings the amount Unite have donated to Labour’s campaign to £3.5 million. In an article for the Daily Mirror, Len McClusky, General Secretary of the union, said they were making the cash injection because “Labour’s commitments will make a huge difference […]

    Give the people what they want: Labour’s devolvers and the desire to give power away

    The time has come to give people what they want – power over their own lives and their own communities. The aloof and distant state, making decisions in giant offices in Whitehall can feel – and act – as distantly as the big businesses, utility companies, landlords and transport companies that treat us like numbers on a page rather than individuals with needs and hopes of our own. Labour stands ready to take on the power challenge. Whilst tackling economic […]

    Labour campaign launch: A message of hope amid Tory warnings will prove a delicate balancing act for Miliband

    “Britain can do better than this.” “Britain can do better than this.” “Britain can do better than this.” Seven times we heard the refrain in the opening two and a half minutes of Miliband’s speech – so often was it repeated that it stopped being clear if they were all clap lines or not, leading to a couple of awkward moments. But that line, along with Labour’s official election campaign slogan “A better plan. A better future”, show that at the […]

    Coventry North West: Might Geoffrey Robinson stay on as an MP after all?

    Yesterday evening we reported that Coventry North West MP Geoffrey Robinson was considering stepping down from the Commons at the very last minute – only hours after Parliament shut down for the election – with rumours circulating that a Miliband aide was one of those in the running for the seat. Yet after a tetchy 24 hours (in which the local party have announced plans for an emergency meeting tomorrow night to discuss their options) it now appears that Robinson […]

    Miliband announces “profit-cap” to curb private sector profiteering in the NHS

    Ed Miliband today announced that a Labour government would award fewer NHS contracts, and introduce a “profit cap” for private sector contractors in the NHS to stop profiteering at the public’s expense. Speaking at the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Olympic Park in London, Miliband repeated Labour’s pledges to invest more in the NHS so that the health service has “time to care”, as well as unveiling what he described as a “double lock” to protect the NHS. Labour’s plans include: Imposing a profit […]
