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.

    Burnham v Wark: who won the battle of Newsnight?

    It has been one of the main political stories throughout the day, despite going on telly at about 11 o’clock last night. The clash between Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark and Andy Burnham over the NHS on Newsnight last night was one to remember: the increasing interruptions led to a bit of a barney during the 10 minute interview. But who won? Judge for yourselves…

    Nick Clegg can’t remember name of Lib Dem candidate in seat they’ve held since 1983

    We knew it would happen eventually, but 99 days before the election? At some point during every election, a party leader forgets the name of one of their candidates when speaking to the local press. Nick Clegg may have set a new record by fumbling up a full 12 weeks before voters go the polls. In an interview with the Aberdeen-based Press and Journal, the Deputy PM referred to the Lib Dem candidate for Gordon as “Justine” Jardine. Her name, […]

    Labour could gain more support with anti-austerity message, poll finds

    YouGov’s polling for the Times Red Box looks like it could have the keys to Labour’s election success. Or, at the very least, an indicator of what gain us a little more support. They’ve done this by probing three particular areas – austerity big business and international relations – to see what policies would garner Labour the most support. The first and arguably most topical question given anti-austerity party Syriza’s electoral success in Greece on Sunday is what direction those […]

    PMQs Verdict: It’s two blokes shouting at each other, what’s that got to do with my life?

    Last week Ed Miliband was quite candid about PMQs, when he said: “Watching me and David Cameron shout at each other once a week on Prime Minister’s Questions isn’t very enlightening for anybody, let’s be frank about it. It probably massively puts people off politics if they’re watching it because they think: ‘It’s two blokes shouting at each other, what’s that got to do with my life?’” This week Miliband and Cameron headed to the chamber to prove how accurate […]
