The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

To live every moment to the fullest and make the biggest difference to people’s lives that I can.

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

I love the motto ‘carpe diem’ (seize the day). When I was younger, Dead Poets Society was one of my favourite films.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2017?

Brexit.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

Currently I’m missing not seeing my children much because I am campaigning so hard.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Knowing that my children will have a great future.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the state of the financial system?

One of the things I would like to see in Kensington is more support for small businesses and local shop owners that help to create our community. We are currently facing threats to our local services from business rates and that is something that needs to be addressed.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

I loathe it when people say things they don’t mean. ‘Strong and Stable’ is currently high up there.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I agree. I support that concept. Having worked at Crisis, I continue to support homeless charities. I also love shopping in our fabulous Kensington charity shops.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Mobiles are amazingly useful and I’m a bit of an addict to my device. However, there is a time and a place for them.

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

George Orwell, Harriet Harmen, Lawrence of Arabia, Margaret Thatcher, Winston Churchill, Sophie in’t Veld, Hercule Poirot, Hilary Clinton, Charlie Chaplin, Shirley Williams, Paula Radcliffe, Prince and Laura Kuenssberg.

 

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

My meal would be steak, chips and red wine followed by tiramisu. I’d rather like to eat it high up in Petra overlooking the wondrous landscape.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

That depends entirely on which time zone you are going by.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A martini, preferably an espresso martini.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Now, dinner parties with close friends but when I was younger, more partying.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My husband.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

The ‘Archers Appreciation’ group on Facebook… With wine.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A dragon.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Mercedes-Benz Gullwing.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

That I was an ultra-marathon runner and completed the Marathon Des Sables in 2008.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

An elephant – the house is littered with them, candlesticks and birthday cards for my eldest’ fifth birthday.

 

Annabel Mullin was born and brought up in Kensington and Chelsea. She is mother of three young children, a keen environmentalist and a cyclist. She is a criminal justice expert and has spent most of her life working in London as an analyst, a Metropolitan Police officer in Soho and Mayfair and as an assistant psychologist with prisoners with mental illness.

  1. Great answers. She will make a much better MP than Vic Borwick – I’ve written to her twice. Never had a single reply.

  2. A sensible set of answers from a lady who plainly is of the next generation of politicians. After the Blair Babes and the Cameron Cuties, we need something a bit more substantial. A lady who has been a police officer and worked in mental health is exactly that. Quite the contrast with the cocktail party hostess, mother of Cambridge Analytica employee, ignore your constituents Lady Borwick.

  3. I made a very big mistake and voted for Brexit last year. I am correcting my mistake and voting for the Liberal Democratic candidate on 8 June. People in Kensington should do exactly the same as me and I especially say that having read the interview with Annabel. She comes across as the kind of lady I truly would like to see as a Member of our Great British Parliament. Go Annabel! Go!

  4. Vote Victoria Borwick! We need HARD BREXIT and only Victoria will deliver that. Her and her family back the right horse and you losers are losers. Get over yourselves and accept reality. Losers.
