Ann Widdecombe may have been 'the people's choice' to become Speaker of the House of Commons, but the MPs weren't ready for her. With a personality guaranteed to make her a hit with the tabloid press, 'Doris Karloff' acquired her nickname by describing her former boss Michard Howard as having 'something of the night' about him.
Ann's political career included both Ministerial and Shadow positions before she decided to make her presence felt from the back benches. Away from Westminster, Ann is devoting more time to her interests outside party politics - after fronting documentaries on prostitution, truancy, girl gangs and cosmetic surgery. She also continues to publish novels.
After dinner Ann reflects on the highs and lows - and perhaps the only occasion on which she lost her Christian principles. She welcomes questions from the audience, dealing with them as only a politician can - by tackling the underlying reason for the question.
