I am due to join a cruise from Venice this month in what many are seeing as an attempt to relaunch my political career.
Cabaret dancers are what cruise ships normally offer as entertainment - or, at the more refined end of the market, academics lecturing about history or wildlife. But holidaymakers who board a luxury cruise liner in Venice this month can look forward to distractions of a rather different kind - me!
"Il Cavaliere", or The Knight as I am known to Italians, will be the special guest on a week-long cruise which will take in the Adriatic coast of Italy and then Croatia, Greece and Turkey.
Then my return to politics may be on the cards yes?
