Esther Rantzen has decided to stand as an MP

Esther Rantzen, a BBC careerist, has decided she will stand as an independent MP for the constituency of Luton South, because she "fell in love with the place." The incumbent Labour MP, Margaret Moran, with a majority of 5,560 has decided to stand down after being caught using her parliamentary expenses to decorate a house several hundred miles away.

Expert opinion has it that Rantzen has no chance of winning, despite the unwarranted and largely uncritical coverage by the BBC which I have railed against in previous posts. It is quite unacceptable that the BBC should attempt to propel one of their own into parliament using public funds to enhance her status.
