Vaz schmoozes up to Winehouse's dad

Keith Vaz doesn’t shy away from the limelight, and his tendency to get famous people into the Home Affairs Select Committee makes me cringe.

In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if one day he applied to go into celebrity Big Brother – we might even see him purring and licking imaginary milk from Anne Robinson’s hand. Shiver.

In the past Vaz has had Cherie Blair in to committee, Shilpa Shetty into Parliament and he put down a motion in the Commons celebrating the life of Michael Jackson.

Anything for a bit of that celebrity stardust to rub off.

His most recent move is to bring Amy Winehouse’s dad into the committee to talk about cocaine addiction.
