Ann Widdecombe says Tories 'couldn't run a whelk stall'

Former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe doesn't seem to think much of her former party - given what she said about them today.

Speaking to Kay Burley on Sky News, the politician slammed the Tories and called the government "hopeless, drifting, chaotic and divided."

"This party couldn't run a whelk stall," she said.

She added: "The worst possible outcome for the country would be a Labour government but the second worst possible outcome is this government. It is hopeless, it is drifting, it is chaotic, it is divided.

"It is just about every last thing that you'd want from a government."

Say how you feel, Anne.
