Standing for Parliament

Postby John Hughes on October 4th, 2011, 10:17 am

Hello, Tom.

As we are in Party Conference Season, and our elected representatives head off for week of prawn sandwiches, frothy coffees and even frothier fringe meetings, it got me wondering....

Have you ever considered standing for election to Parliament? Now, I am not asking which party you would stand for (that's none of my business!). But I do wonder if you have thought about bringing your powers of oratory to the House of Commons - either as a party member or as an independant?

Not only do I think you would win any contest in your constituency by a landslide, but also, I am sure that the Strangers Gallery would be packed to the rafters to hear your maiden speech!

What do you think? Tom Baker M.P.?

As ever, I hope this little communication finds you well, sir?

With thanks and appreciation...
John Hughes

Dear John,

It might have worked well. I have spent my entire life in cloud cuckoo land (see above on Macbeth), so I would have been at home in that house of incurables. I never watch TV except for big rugby games but I read a lot of papers and the American press online, so yes!

But then I would never have gained the affection of so many people the world over as I have since the Tardis adventures.

Best wishes from Tom
