Oatenwatch lives

Mark Oaten has given an interview to the Portsmouth Evening News:

Mark Oaten has turned down offers to appear on reality shows such as Big Brother a year after a tabloid scandal wrecked his life as a senior Lib Dem.

The disgraced Winchester MP revealed that TV bosses wanted to sign him and wife Belinda for the celebrity version of the show.

But the man who went into hiding after a Sunday paper revealed his affair with a rent boy, turned them down because he did not want to become a laughing stock.

I thought this comment from the article showed some good sense:

Refusing to discuss the details of his rent boy shame, he said: 'I don't want to talk about the details of what happened any more. I think most people just want me to shut up.'
