Tory MP says he watches porn, has taken drugs and would snog Theresa May

You’re a Tory spin doctor. You realise the issue of Piggate might have died down for good and you want to finish the job. What do you do?

How about getting one of your top ranking politicians to go on live radio and say he’d snog Theresa May? Yeah, that’d do it.

Appearing on BBC Radio 5 Live, Conservative politician James Cleverly has just given the most earnest of interviews you’re ever likely to hear from a Member of Parliament.
 
And, in fairness to the man, it doesn’t seem he’s been too vetted either, giving a range of brutally honest responses to the host's quick-fire questions.

These ranged from online porn (he’s watched it) to drugs (he dabbled with marijuana while at University, and when pressed on whether he inhaled, he wryly replied, "of course, that’s the point”) to who the next leader of the Tory party should be: himself, apparently.

Though the best moment came when he was faced with Snog, Marry, Avoid, admitting he wouldn’t mind playing tonsil tennis with incumbent Home Secretary Theresa May. Yes, the shocked look on the face of the woman sitting next to him says it all. 

He says he also wouldn’t mind snogging Rita Ora, he’d marry Evette Cooper and avoid David Cameron's recent biographer Isabel Oakeshott.

Admittedly, there was some slightly rehearsed politico-spiel when asked about what he believes he got from private schooling that he wouldn’t have in state school, but all in all it makes for a refreshing change to the overly polished interviews we're used to seeing from MP's.

Then again, maybe it was a bit TMI.
