Christine Hamilton, the wife of disgraced former MP Neil Hamilton, said yesterday that she had had enough of politics - but added that it was possible that she could stand for Parliament herself.

Mrs Hamilton was commenting on the recent Channel 4 comedy Mr White Goes To Westminster, based loosely on the Hamiltons' electoral battle with Martin Bell, in which a disgraced MP's wife runs for Parliament. She said: "There's a whole world outside politics and it would be quite fun having time to enjoy it."

But asked if she might stand for Parliament, Mrs Hamilton, 48, said: "Everything's a possibility - I'm not saying it's a probability."

"I'm the kind of person who's going to survive life. You have to cope with whatever life chucks at you.".
