Darren Gough – The Honourable Member for Barnsley

I’ve have to say that I think I’ve heard it all now. To hear today that Prime Minister, David Cameron has phoned Darren Gough to ask him to stand as the Tory candidate in the constituency of Barnsley has left me wondering just what the hell is going on in the country I live in?

What is politics coming too? This is the latest blatent attempt to Americanize British politics with so called celebrities. I’m not going to get into a political rant about this though, I refuse to do so, this is a sports blog and I don’t want to put readers off.

Gough apparently thought it was a prank phone call and hung up on Cameron, can’t imagine why! I also thought it was a joke when I heard the story earlier.

I don’t know what is the funniest thing about this, Gough getting asked? Or the fact he hung up on the PM? Hanging up on the PM is actually quite a good claim to fame.

But the thought of Darren Gough being a politician, has David Cameron ever heard his radio show on Talksport? Maybe he has, after all the main criteria for a job in Westminister is being able to talk a pile of crap.
