As BBC Commission New Xmas Special
“The view from number 10 is incredibly sexy, particularly at night with the moon and the glow from the old gas lamps. When David and I were first courting we used to walk along the South Bank and look at the Houses of Parliament. I never realised then how sexy I would find living under Big Dave with his bells chiming.
Politicians as a breed, aside from maybe Eric Pickles, aren’t particularly sexy but I think politics can be sexy because power is an aphrodisiac. I can’t enough of it . Since Dave became Prime Minister, the number of women who hit him has gone up dramatically. I don’t get jealous because more men hit me too. I think it’s hilarious and extremely flattering that I’ve been referred to as the Barry Chuckle of British politics.
I don’t mind people knowing about my history of one-night stands, broken promises and alcoholism. I was a bit souped-up when I was Leon Brittain’s European Union policy adviser in my twenties. I’m not proud of it but I’m not ashamed either. I do feel sexier now I’m older and I’ve stopped drinking. I think I grew up in my thirties and gained control of myself.
For dates I like to go somewhere down to earth, and you can’t get more low brow than crawling in Hell’s gutter on a double date with Rebekah Brooks and James Murdoch. I’ve got a sweet tooth so I find puddings, particularly chocolate, very sexy and it also helps sweeten the bitter pill Lib Dems have been forced to swallow of late. This Valentine’s Day, David is destroying the country in the evening, so I will probably be eating a Chinese takeaway and a bar of chocolate on my own upstairs…just waiting to feel his touch, to bask in his glory and hopefully enjoy mutual approbation later. The most romantic thing I’ve ever done for David is to allow him to f*ck me and my party up our collective arse. He’s a very lucky man. “
