If it was Alex or a dummy, I’d cast my vote for the dummy

Have your say

I had to laugh when I saw that 63-year-old Renee Slater from Aberdeen had been arrested and charged after entering a tailor’s dummy named Helena Torry in local elections.

But then I discovered that Katie Price’s ex-hubby, cage fighter Alex Reid, has announced he wants to be a Member of Parliament.

Now, if I had to put my cross next to either one in an election, I think it would be for the dummy.

Outlining his ambition to become an MP, Reid said: ‘I believe I can use my power as a celebrity to influence young people, to help them be the people they want to be and to have a better Britain.’

Hmmm. When asked about her hopes should she succeed in getting elected, the mannequin remained silent on the matter.
