Sol Campbell Hints At Tory Political Career

The former England footballer Sol Campbell has hinted that he's considering entering politics as the Conservative candidate for Kensington.

During an appearance on Sky News' Murnaghan programme, the former Spurs and Arsenal player was asked if he would seek to be selected for the seat.

He replied: "Step by step. I think about a lot of things."

The seat became vacant following Sir Malcolm Rifkind's decision not to stand at the General Election amid a cash-for-access controversy.

Mr Campbell has been courted by the Tories and recently lunched with party chairman Grant Shapps.

Mr Campbell also told the Murnaghan programme he supports Prime Minister David Cameron's promise to hold a referendum on UK membership of the European Union.

But he said Britons must "know the facts and figures" before voting.

"It's about going in there and getting the facts and figures and making sure the British people know what's happening," he said.

"I look at the eurozone and I look at Germany - the only reason that Germany loves the euro is because they make so much money because the Mark was so expensive."
