Also on the radio, apparently Jeffrey Archer wants to rejoin the Conservative Party and even re-enter the House of Lords; to which there can only be one response - PLEASE GOD, NO! STAY AWAY!I have to admit this is a hard choice. On the one hand no-one is beyond redemption and Archer has now served his sentence (and I'm not sure of any rule the party has to prevent his membership). On the other hand this is Jeffrey Archer.
The only redeeming feature is that the time he's spent on this is time he's not spending writing books. I've never enjoyed any of his books. And his first children's book, Willy visits the Square World, is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. For those fortunate enough to have avoided it, this book tells the story of a little boy who has a talking teddy and a magic spacesuit that transports him to another planet to find their missing cat, who's been stolen from Cambridge by an evil ogre. Oh and they lose the spacesuit but get home with a lift by "Upside Down Bird". No, I'm not making any of that up.
