Ann Widdecombe video – no, no, not again

Yesterday I was invited to watch a video of Ann Widdicombe, the fomer Tory MP. Fortunately I remembered watching her cavorting about on “Strictly come dancing” last year and the effect she had on me then. From somewhere I found the strength to pull back my finger from the button.
Apparently the good lady gave a speech at a fringe meeting at the Tory conference, but Coalition for Marriage, who sent the invitation, expected me to spend three or four times more time watching her performance than was necessary. I replied and asked for a copy of the speech, which could of course be transcribed from the video.
We read three or four times quicker when we read silently. That way I reckon that I could cope with Ann Widdicombe, in writing.
