The political prospects for Adam Rickitt have, for some reason, been the subject of much blogster speculation over the last couple of years. Pendennis in the Observer believes his political career may be dead due to him making a "hand shandy" sign behind Nigel Evans MP's back at a House of Commons' photocall.
Actually, surely this should increase the lad's political chances shouldn't it.....although not necessarily in the Tory party?
Rickitt is currently on a long-term assignment in New Zealand. This seems to be a very popular place for would-be Tory MPs.
