Tories may boot Dorries out for good

27th November, 2012 9:59 am

Nadine Dorries is meeting Tory Chief Whip Sir George Young right now (10am) to discover her fate after bunking off to the jungle. Yet the Sun suggests that she’s unlikely to be allowed back onto the Tory benches:

Even if she repents, the offence she caused may be judged so grave that she may STILL get the boot. A top Tory figure said: “Nadine Dorries has done immense damage to her reputation as an MP.

“She will have to do an awful lot to be allowed back. That looks unlikely at the moment.”

The paper goes on to suggest that Dorries may sit as an independent until 2015. There is another possibility though – could we see her join UKIP?

    Would be very interesting if she defects to UKIP. Several former Tory MEP’s as well as a few peers in Lords are now with UKIP. It might enamour some ex-Tory voters, but I don’t think the people of Mid-Bedfordshire are pleased with any of her recent antics.

    The party’s bigger challenge will be if they can win their first MP later this week.

    Apparently the Labour Party has openings for waifs and strays…
