Another Rentaquote On The Way?

The media are always on the look-out for newly-elected MPs who are, in the jargon, "colourful". One such candidate could well be Debi Jones, a local Tory councillor in Crosby, that supposedly rough & tough patch which Cherie Blair had to endure in her childhood.
The Crosby constituency will be no more at the next election. With part of the Knowsley area tacked on, it will be known as Sefton Central. Given the latest polls, the area looks like electing Ms Jones, the Tory candidate. As well as being a councillor, she was also a local radio "personality" back in the 80s, & hit the local headlines a couple of years' ago with her claim that Antony Gormley's sculptures on Crosby beach, Another Place, formed a hazard to shipping in Crosby Channel.
Local political observers privately remark that she often speaks first & thinks later. The national media could have a field day with Councillor Jones.
