"I'm the MP for Eastleigh!"
"No, I'm the MP for Eastleigh!" - Hollywood star wins historic victory
Holywood star, Michael Douglas, has become the surprise winner of the Eastleigh Byelection. Full name, Michael Douglas Thorton, is best known for Hollywood Blockbusters like Basic Instinct and Wall Street and for his high profile marriage to Welsh starlet, Katherine Zeta Jones. Perhaps less well known is his work as a parish councillor for the Hampshire constituency of Eastleigh.
Regarding his historic victory, Douglas is reported as saying "Obviously, winning the Oscar for Best Actor for playing Gordon Geko in Wall Street was a career highlight, but I regard it as secondary to my job as Parish councillor for for Bishopstoke and Eastleigh. Now I have the opportunity to take my work even further by representing Eastleigh as a member of parliament."
