Sometimes a story seems so outlandish that the only possible immediate course of action is to close the paper/browser, take a moment's pause and open it again. Even by these standards, however, the news that former male Tracy Shaw Adam Rickitt is on the shortlist for potential Tory parliamentary candidates is staggering. Can you imagine Rickitt passing a public speaking test? Would his political enemies be within their rights to bring up that video where he was in a clear plastic box in the nude? What if he was put forward as a stalking horse candidate against the party leader? Should David Cameron get worried this early about a threat to his telegenic reputation?
