Andrea Leadsom kicks Theresa May in the ovaries

Andrea Leadsom clenched her fist and smacked Theresa May, her rival for the Tory Parry leadership, right below the belt and into the ovaries. May has no children. Leadsom has three children. This, reasons Leadsom, makes her a better human being than May, more able to think of the future and other people.

In the numbers game, Dear Andrea is, of course, not as good as the old woman who lived in the shoe (loads kids), Rose West (eight children) but a bit better than Jezebel (two kids). Leadsom is a lot better than Mother Teresa, Gloria Steinem, Dame Helen Mirren and Dolly Parton (no children between them).

This was is what Dear Andrea told the Times:

 

leadsom children theresa may

 

She also said this:

 

leadsom jamie oliver

Dear Andrea is supported in her leadership campaign by Ian Duncan Smith. Dear Ian has already stated: “I believe that Andrea’s strong family family background… will make her a great prime minister for the UK.”

This attack seems awfully familiar. In 2001 top Tory Norman Tebbit (three children) backed Duncan Smith (four children) to beat Michael Portillo (no children, married and who spoke of his “homosexual experiences” – what Tebbit called “deviance”) in the Tory leadership race. Said Tebbit: “He [IDS] is a remarkably normal family man with children.”

Portillo was winning the race. After the gay story was fanned, he lost. IDS won.

Nasty stuff.

PS: Leadsom has accused the Times (like May, and unlike Leadsom, the paper backed Remain in the EU Referendum) of “gutter journalism”. The writer stands by her story.

What Mrs Leadsom said:

Rachel Sylvester: “Do you feel like a mum in politics?”
Andrea Leadsom: “Yes. So…
RS: “Why and how?”
AL: “So really carefully because I am sure, I don’t really know Theresa very well but I am sure she will be really really sad she doesn’t have children so I don’t want this to be ‘Andrea has children, Theresa hasn’t’ because I think that would be really horrible.
“But genuinely I feel being a mum means you have a very real stake in the future of our country, a tangible stake.
“She possibly has nieces, nephews, lots of people, but I have children, who are going to have children, who will directly be a part of what happens next.
“So it really keeps you focused on ‘what are you really saying?’. Because what it means is you don’t want a downturn but ‘never mind, let’s look ahead to the ten years’, hence it will all be fine. My children will be starting their lives in that next ten years so I have a real stake in the next year, the next two.”

So, she said it, then.

Cheryl Cole And Ashley’s 18-Month Itch

itching.jpgHAS Cheryl Cole developed the 18-month itch?

Right now Cheryl is deciding what to do about her footballer, Ashley Cole.

It’s hard to know what to do for the best, what with Polly Hudson in the Mirror advising one thing and the GMTV team yet to make a united judgement.

And what of the itching? In “CHERLY: SEX TEST FEAR OVER ASHLEY”, Star readers learn “PRAY BITCH DIDN’T LEAVE YOU AN ITCH”.

It turns out that “DEVASTATED” Cheryl Cole “fears for her sexual health”. This after the news that one Aimee Walton says she slept with Cole’s

footballer, a claim echoed by mod-el Brooke Healy, who added that sex with said footballer was unprotected (although she claims the footballer’s

people paid her a sum of hush money by way of security).

Meanwhile, Cherly is, as reported, losing weight. The Sun says the singer has not eaten for a week. This is not some plan to get Cheryl in shape

for her next pop video, rather a reaction to her husband’s alleged philandering.

Nor is Cheryl to emabrk on her Itch Away The XTra Inch DVD workout. Although, Sceintists at the Michigan School of Dieting And Scratchology say itching can burn off more calories than sex…
