Alex Reid wants to be an MP
We've heard it all now. Reality TV star and cage fighter Alex Reid has announced that he would love to be an MP and wants to 'use his power as a celebrity to influence young people'.
Talking to The Sun "I'm someone who can get the points across that people want and can understand without jargon."
The expectant father was speaking at Parliament yesterday at the launch of Labour's Let's Do Lunch campaign. Apparently being an MP would be easy in comparison to cage fighting.
Not exactly the same thing, Alex.
We might not be sure that Alex would be the best candidate for parliament, but didn't America once say the same about Arnold Schwarzenegger? Still, somehow we can't see Alex getting any votes outside of a reality TV show.
