I’ve heard of Esther Rantzen, obviously.
David Van Day, never. The former singer from Dollar, apparently an 80s pop duo, has said he could become the latest anti-sleaze parliamentary candidate. The 52-year old wants to stand against Nadine Dorries at the next general election.
Apparently he was appalled by Ms Dorries’ radio interview where she accused the Telegraph of “McCarthy-ite witch hunts” and warned that some of her MP colleagues were “beginning to crack”.
Van Day, an unsuccessful former Tory council candidate, wants to start a “No Expenses Party”.
According to PA, he appeared in the 8th series of “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” with Ms Rantzen.
He reportedly blew £100,000 on cocaine during his pop-tastic past: “I am no Mother Theresa but all my stuff is out there, it’s not hidden like the expenses claims were hidden from the general public.,,I will let the people judge for themselves…We’re talking about things that happened 20-odd years ago and I was in a rock and roll lifestyle. It’s well in the past.”
“I have a bit of a mucky past but all that has made me a better person – I have been tested and I failed sometimes, but I have been tested and it has made me a better person.”
