Nicola Blackwood MP – the heir to Peter Lilley

Reported straight by the BBC at the time, the vocal outburst with which new Tory MP Nicola Blackwood celebrated her election has been strangely little remarked since.

We think this is a shame. Unlike most MPs, Ms Blackwood apparently trained as an opera singer. Which probably explains her unusual lack of reticence.

Peter Lilley’s sung party conference turns provided some of the most cringe-making moments of the old Tory era. Though he still sits (somewhat surprisingly given his sharp intelligence and massive experience) in Parliament, he is now an elder statesman. He rarely sings any more.

Perhaps Ms Blackwood, in which case, may take up the baton?
