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?

    Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper is ready to raise the prospect of challenging the Tories’ proposed anti-trade union laws in the courts, claiming it might contravene human rights legislation. Cooper says she has received legal advice that points to potential breaches of Article 11 of the European Convention of Human Rights, which preserves the right of freedom of association, including trade unions. The leadership contender will accuse the Conservatives of trying to use their position to cripple the opposition with […]

    Dan Jarvis has slammed Labour for being “in denial” about the threat caused by UKIP, in a new report published this weekend. ‘Reconnecting Labour’, which was commissioned by Andy Burnham in July as part of his campaign to become leader, looks specifically at how Labour wins back votes lost to the anti-EU party. Jarvis raises concerns that the EU referendum a new high-profile platform that could cause further problems for Labour. He says that Labour were too relaxed about the […]

    The Labour leadership contest: too much politics and not enough personality

    Our recent prime ministers were not elected to lead their parties following general election defeats, and there are many problems with electing leaders whilst on the rebound. One of the biggest is that everyone is still in General Election Mode, presenting manifestos rather than their qualities as a leader. Policies and ideas are not wedded to any one person – any candidate could institute a policy suggested by any other candidate. Having good ideas qualifies one for the top table, […]

    What lessons does Lynton Crosby have for Labour?

    After May’s general election, it appeared everyone in the party who tweeted or blogged was sure they knew why Labour had lost. By some weird coincidence, these opinions always seemed to mirror the prejudices of the author. You know the type of thing – our policies were too right wing, our policies were too left wing, our policies were too centrist, etc. Not very enlightening. So, to get a more balanced view, I turned to Lynton Crosby. I appreciate that’s […]

    Peter Mandelson has argued that Labour is in “mortal danger” . In an article in the Financial Times (£), the former cabinet minister and Labour campaigns director has warned against a Jeremy Corbyn victory. If the Islington North MP wins the leadership election, “that would be a very bad outcome for anyone who cares about fairness in our society or Britain’s place in the world”, Mandelson writes. Mandelson has called for a tightening of the rules over the leadership election […]
