    I’d have thought it rather dangerous ground for LabourList to feature this kind of stuff – when the Labour Party is now headed by so many Oxbridge educated yuppies like Miliband, Balls, Cooper, Burnham etc.)

    • Brumanuensis

      Whilst the current crop of Labour front-benchers are rather more middle-class than in the past, there’s no comparison between any of them, and Cameron and Osborne’s personal wealth. Or indeed a large share of the Conservative front-bench.

  • Richard Stay

    Is this not a strange story for Labour to be promoting? Not sure any of the main political parties can claim to be entirely posh free zones?

       Unless of course they are paving the way for her to cross over, she could then sit next to Miliband as a minister for  ?.

  • treborc1

    She is not happy with Cameron for his   answer at PMQ’s a over her failed abortion idea, women scorned and all that.

    If she feels so seriously about it take a walk to the labour side, she can then accuse Miliband.

  • Mark Myword

    I suspect that this woman has been told that she is not being favoured by her party for a safe seat after the boundary review. That, together with Cameron’s comment at PMQs, has triggered a maelstrom of anger,bitterness, and spite. She is dangerous and labour should steer well clear – let her go to UKIP – that seems closest to her natural home.

  • Mike Homfray

    Defection to UKIP being planned?

  • Ms Dorries’ political judgments are always entirely convincing but with this, it has to be said, she has hit the mark and shown herself to be faultlessly perceptive.

      I suppose this means that from now on Ms Dorries will not be getting a Xmas card from Guy M, who will come to the conclusion that she is a Marxist “Lower class” envious “nut”
      🙂

    It’s a shame Nadine Dorries is saying this. If it was Sir Malcolm Rifkind, I might get a bit more excited. Although it would be an odd thing for Sir Malcolm to say.

    How about Tebbit? The Chingford Skinhead has been known to be pretty hard on the gruesome two-some.

    “We can stop this madness” – David Lammy calls for Parliament vote on Brexit

    David Lammy has called for a vote in Parliament on whether the UK should leave the EU following Thursday Brexit vote in the referendum. The Labour MP, who campaigned for a Remain vote, posted a statement to Twitter this afternoon saying: “We do not have to do this.” Lammy, who has been MP for Tottenham since 2000 and stood to be Labour’s candidate for London Mayor, said that as the referendum was not “binding” (meaning there is no legal imperative […]

    Corbyn to plotters: Challenge me and I’ll run again

    Jeremy Corbyn has said he would stand again if Labour MPs triggered a new leadership contest. Corbyn refused to dwell on the attempt to force a vote of no confidence on his leadership after a speech on immigration this morning, but accepted that some of his parliamentary colleagues “probably want someone else”. Asked whether he would stand again if MPs were successful in forcing a leadership election, he replied: “Yes, I’m here. Thank you.” His comments were met with raucous applause from […]

    We must remain firmly internationalist in the face of Brexit

    The EU Referendum has produced a ‘Leave’ vote in most of my constituency and of the country. Politics are based on the principle of consent and we have to accept that the popular will is for Britain to leave the European Union. As an elected representative and on behalf of the Labour Party, I respect the result and must commit to its outcome. I am proud of the way Labour fought the referendum campaign. United as a party, I believe […]

    The shadow Cabinet is crucial to the future of Corbyn’s leadership

    Amid the wreckage of the EU referendum campaign, Labour figures from the shadow Cabinet to the grassroots are now looking at Monday’s meeting of MPs as the crunch moment for the future of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. A discussion of the no-confidence motion at Monday evening’s meeting is likely to prompt a secret ballot on the leader and this could be held as soon as Tuesday. Both sides of the parliamentary party are uncertain, however, of the impact of a non-binding […]

    We need a left response to Brexit – and Labour can shape the debate

    Yesterday was the most momentous of many of our political lifetimes. It certainly was for me. The referendum result has laid bare the deep divisions which fracture the country, but the reality – as anyone who’s knocked more than a few doors over recent years knows – is that the discontent, the disconnect and the fractures have all been there for really quite some time. What I can’t deny is that their exposure, in such a stark form and with such consequence, […]
