NotesNews: Appearances can deceive, in politics perhaps more than any other aspect of life.
Michael Howard's offering of the olive branch, say Ann Widdecombe's supporters, has less to
do with magnanimity than saving his own face. She has already been sounded out about a post
in Hague's team and the shadow Foreign Secretary is in no position to object. It is no
longer thought to be a case of if she will join the Shadow Cabinet but in what capacity.
... "There is a lot of support for Ann Widdecombe in the Shadow Cabinet and he can hardly
object. He is basically retaliating first by being gracious. But he has been very frosty
the few times they have spoken together recently. If she gets on the Shadow Cabinet they
will obviously work together, but it would be hypocritical to say there has been a
rapprochement". [3rd March The Independent Kim Sengupta]
