Widdecombe, Webb & Woberts: #5 – Sir David Amess’s Friend Ann Widdecombe on His Murder, MP Safety, Religion & Online Safety Bill

October 21,2021

In a special episode of Widdecombe, Webb & Woberts LIVE, Ann Widdecombe pays tribute to her good friend Sir David Amess, who was horrifically murdered in a frenzied attack during a constituency surgery. She reflects on their friendship and his career as well as his murder; and discusses the nature of the media and political attention it has received in the days following. Other topics discussed include MP safety (should constituents be vetted prior to meeting their MP?), the Online Safety Bill (is this a distraction given that there is no evidence it has any relevance to Sir David’s murder?) and the conversion to Roman Catholicism of Dr. Michael Nazir Ali, formerly the Anglican Bishop of Rochester
