Nadine goes to war with Cameron (again), but now it’s front page news…

24th November, 2012 12:35 pm

She may still be in Australia, but Nadine Dorries has gone to war with David Cameron (again). Except this time – thanks to her fleeting moment of reality TV fame – it’s on the front page of The Sun:

Here are some of the key quotes from the piece:

On Boris

“I long for the day Boris Johnson is Prime Minister. He is a good man and a hero of mine, and he can reach people other politicians can’t.”

On Cameron’s “control mechanism”

“There is a real control mechanism under Cameron in Number Ten now. MPs and how they vote are tampered with. If Boris Johnson was Prime Minister and issues like abortion came to Parliament, it would be a free vote. And it would be a FREE vote.He wouldn’t tamper with people’s views, unlike what happens now in Cameron’s Westminster, and he would be more statesmanlike.”

And she even dumps on Andrew Mitchell

“I did tell Andrew Mitchell I might be away for as long as a month and it would be controversial. He was on holiday in Antigua at the time.”

It’s war…

    A woman desperate for publicity, doing what she does so often, this time on the front page of the grubbiest of the tabloids. Did News International pay for the advert?

      You support Cameron on this one then Alan?

    Our very own Sarah Palin (maybe that explains the Sun’s news priorities).

    Clearly Nadine is a huge asset and should be kept in the news as much as possible. Given the Tory ascendancy in Mid-Beds it’s going to something extra special that does for Nadine, because it’s unlikely to be the electorate. Something that should make the DC nervous about deposing her.

    Better Dorries is featured on page one of the Sun than page three.

      She’s annoying but quite nice looking IMO 🙂

        I hear that a leaked sex tape can sometimes revivify a flagging career. I’d keep my eyes peeled if I were you because as far as Nadine goes it can only be a matter of time…

    Very disturbingly this is ‘News International’ throwing its weight around pre-Levenson. The FT has counted over 90 arrests in connection with the press scandal including public officials as well as the PM’s former communications adviser. Hopefully our party will be upfront and bold in the coming weeks when the press start their sickly counter-offensive. This was and remains a major grotesque intrusion of privacy in a leading democracy complicated by deeply disturbing contacts at the heart of our government. There’s – not -going to be any humility from a ‘profession’ that hacked into a murdered girl’s mobile.

    I don’t think she’d care about the possibility of having the Tory whip removed completely from her. Doubtful whether the Tory stronghold in Mid-Beds would want to keep her in if she contests the next election. Having backbench nutters like this can be mildly entertaining since they’re never going be ministers (Peter Bone being another one).

  • With this sort of statement I wonder if she wants the whip back?

    Thatcher wanted the ‘managed decline’ of Merseyside. I want to manage its renaissance

    Back in the 1980s, Margaret Thatcher’s government came close to writing off Merseyside. There was a serious conversation about leaving our city and its neighbours to ‘managed decline’ and the tender mercies of her economic shock therapy. As her Chancellor at the time, Geoffrey Howe, patronisingly put it: ‘We must not expend all our limited resources in trying to make water flow uphill.’ We’ve come a long way since then. Since 2010, Labour has had the privilege of running Liverpool […]

    It’s not the shared economy, stupid – but it does require a collective response

    It is often described as the sharing economy. It sounds very cuddly. All of us on a patchwork sofa, sharing a nice cup of tea… Or it’s the gig economy – because Uber drivers are all creative artists enjoying their freedom to perform… I prefer to call it the new intermediaries economy. Not as cuddly or cool but more accurate. When you get into an Uber cab the driver is not sharing her car with you, she is selling you […]

    Blair: Brexit would hit living standards of society’s poorest most

    Tony Blair has weighed in on the debate over Brexit, warning that leaving the European Union would hit living standards and hit the poorest in society most. The former Prime Minister appears to make an appeal to Labour supporters – seen as an important swing demographic in the vote – in two interventions today. While Blair is a divisive, and even simply unpopular, figure in the modern Labour Party, there are hopes that he is still seen as a political “big beast” and […]

    Patronising people with patriotism will not win 2020

    Labour will need to win over the socially conservative voters of today in win in 2020 – but flag waving will not make up for a lack of credible policy on welfare and spending and a real understanding of the hardship faced by working people throughout the country. Widely reported research by Jon Cruddas this week suggested that since 2005, voters that were sympathetic to more socially conservative ideas have been increasingly more likely to select UKIP over Labour on […]
