Dorries slams “arrogant posh boys” Cameron and Osborne

    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.

    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.

    Miliband seems likes he wants to win more than Cameron, poll finds

    Yesterday David Cameron gave a speech in which he attempted to show his ‘passion’ by saying he’s ‘pumped up’ for the rest of the election campaign. However, prior to this display of election fervour from the Tory camp, YouGov did some polling for The Times Red Box on this very subject. They asked respondents:“of David Cameron and Ed Miliband, which one comes across as wanting to win the most.” Miliband got almost double the amount of votes that Cameron did, […]

    Economic growth slows right down as UK sees longest ever fall in living standards

    On Sunday, Boris Johnson said “the economy is going gangbusters”. Today, the latest GDP figures show the British economy slowed right down in the first quarter of 2015, to a growth level of just 0.3% – compared to 0.6% in the last quarter of 2014. The only sector where the economy was seen to grow is the service industry, with growth falling in production, construction and agriculture – painting a picture of a highly uneven economy emerging. GDP stats in […]

    Tory MP says Cameron has “utterly let down” his constituents

    Tory MP Nick de Bois has accused famous phoney David Cameron of having “utterly let down” his constituents over a hospital closure. Back in 2007, a fresh-faced Tory leader was photographed campaigning to save Chase Farm Hospital. Here he is with de Bois: He even posed with fellow Tory MP – and geography whizz– David Burrowes, holding this poster: Nice pose – remind anyone of anything? In late 2013, both the A&E and maternity services at Chase Farm were closed. So much for no cuts […]

    Miliband unveils 10 point plan for action on immigration without “playing the politics of fear”

    Yesterday Ed Miliband added a sixth pledge to Labour’s pledge card, when he made further commitments on housing. Today he returns to another of Labour’s pledges – immigration. In a speech in Wales, the Labour leader will challenge David Cameron to back his “clear, credible and concrete” plan for action on immigration in the first 100 days after the election – including an immigration bill in Labour’s first Queen’s Speech. Miliband will say: “Today, I challenge the Conservative Party to […]

    Top Tory admits they’ve given up on their No1 target seat

    David Cameron is currently running around talking about how “pumped up” he is, and claiming that his party are still aiming for a majority. That would require the Tories to gain more than twenty seats without losing any. To this end, they’ve developed what they call a “40/40″ strategy to try and defend forty seats and win forty seats. The number one seat on their target seat list in Hampstead and Kilburn, where the Tories finished just 42 votes behind […]
