Madonna to lend support to conservatives?
Liberal singer Madonna is considering lending her support to right-wing British political party the Conservatives, by attending its annual winter ball in London on Tuesday.
The Material Girl and husband Guy Ritchie are expected to go to the Grosvenor House Hotel as guests of Guy’s dad John and stepmother Shireen, who is the chairperson of the exclusive Kensington and Chelsea Conservative Association.
It’s thought the celebrity couple are keen to align themselves with the opposition party after becoming annoyed with a Labour government decision that ruled land on their $15 million Ashcombe Estate near Salisbury in Wiltshire, south England, will be open to ramblers.
The 45-year-old singer hopes to quash the decision that their land falls under British Right to Roam laws.
An insider says, “There are several very high-profile people tipped to come to the ball, Madonna being just one.
“It would be fantastic if she showed and we would be delighted to see her. She’s a natural Conservative, an independent, hard-working self-starter.
“And she’s developed an interest in country affairs since she met and married Guy and they moved to Wiltshire.
“It would undoubtedly be a sensational celebrity coup for the Conservatives, and one in the eye for Labour if Madonna lends her support to the event.”
