The price of vanity: Nadine Dorries will cost the taxpayer at least £6158 while she’s on “I’m a celebrity”
The New Statesman reported earlier that Nadine Dorries will receive £5748 from the taxpayer while she’s recording “I’m a celebrity”.
In fact, it will be significantly higher.
Since March 2011 Dorries has sat on the “Panel of Chairs”, whose role is to “chair Public Bill Committees and other general committees. They may also chair debates in Westminster Hall and act as temporary chairs of Committees of the whole House.”
As Dorries has been a member for over a year, she receives an additional £8166 per year on top of her salary, bringing it up to £73,904 per year.
That means Dorries is in fact costing the taxpayer the astonishing sum of at least £6158 in salary alone during her
vanity exercise important MPs work on prime time TV.
Expenses could bring the total close to £10,000.
And to think she calls other people “out of touch”…
