NEVER out of the limelight for long Simon Danczuk is planning to marry his new girlfriend in a chapel the House of Commons crypt which featured in a sex scene on BBC One’s Apple Tree Yard.
Members of both Houses of Parliament are allowed to have weddings and christenings in the Anglican chapel which dates back to the 13th century.
A Christmas wedding is planned.
This seems prudent. But it might have been even more prudent to bring it forward a little. If the police investigation into the £11,000 expenses claim does not, to paraphrase Emperor Hirohito, develop to Simon’s advantage, by Christmas 2017 he may no longer be eligible for the privilege.
And of course there is the small matter of whether the Christian charity of the Anglican communion will extend to bestowing the sacrament of marriage upon a twice married man who, if you will permit the indelicacy of the phrase, has a reputation for liking to ‘put it about a bit’.
