Andrew Strauss MP

August 30, 2012 by  

Andrew Strauss MP, Andrew Strauss was being touted as a future Tory MP yesterday after quitting cricket for good. Strauss, 35, is a party supporter who raised £25,000 for David Cameron by offering himself as an auction prize at fundraising dinner last year. His decision to retire from cricket came on the same day that former chick-lit author Louise Mensch formally stood down as Conservative MP for Corby.

Fellow Tories in the Northamptonshire town were bowled over at the idea of the ex-England captain coming out to bat for them in the by-election, where the party is on a sticky wicket. Councillor Rob McKellar said: “I couldn’t rule out voting for Andrew Strauss as a Conservative candidate if the rumours were to be true. “I would like our next MP to be somebody who lives in the constituency and who has Corby and East Northamptonshire at heart.”

Tory sources at Westminster admitted that landing the cricketer would be a huge catch as a Parliamentary candidate. But no formal talks have taken place and party insiders said it was too late for Corby.
