Nadine Dorries has written an article for the Mail on Sunday entitled: "The PM publicly humiliated me in front of the entire nation, [sic] what did I do to deserve that? "

Hmmm... well, Nadine, the dodgy punctuation (which may be the fault of the Mail subs) apart, I doubt the entire nation tunes in to Prime Minister's Question, or indeed to the news. In fact, a fair percentage of the nation doesn't know who David Cameron is, and almost the entire nation hasn't a clue who or what you are.

So I wouldn't worry too much about the humiliation.

Secondly, you must accept that this is the kind of thing that David Cameron and his sort do. They have never really left the Bullingdon and grown up. They are, and will always remain, as drunken rich boys, with daddies to sort everything with their cheque books. George Gideon Osborne and his "wanker" speech is a perfect example of junior common room humour in the wrong place. Your put down, and that of Labour front bencher Angela "calm down dear" Eagle (with Gideon sitting at his side convulsed with laugh
ter) is typical of their boyish humour.

You must also realise this type forms a sizeable minority of your party and a disproportionate number of the Cabinet, and you need to decide for yourself if you really are in the right place.

On the other hand you need to take into consideration that, on a few occasions, you have caused Cameron a fair amount of embarrassment, so it's not all one way traffic.

Your situation vis a vis expenses was far from exemplary. You accused the Telegraph of McCarthyism! You claimed that MPs were threatening suicide and that they were all telephoning each other to check up that each was still alive! You'll remember your blog being taken down by the service providers because the Telegraph was threatening to sue them! Cameron was acutely embarrassed by all that, at a time when he was trying to show a shocked nation that he was a responsible party leader.

Then there was the time you campaigned against a motion at a TUC Conference calling on employers to stop forcing women to wear high heels at work as part of uniforms. You, presumably without reading the motion properly, thought that they were asking for a ban on high heels being allowed... What a twerp you looked.

Then there was your public criticism of the Speaker and your insinuations that he was mentally unstable... I can say Bercow's as mad as a wee March hare, but Mr Cameron's not my boss, and, unless you do it in the Chamber, officially, with the aim of removing him, Nad, you are supposed to show respect for him, no matter how hard that might be.

What else? Oh yes, there was your taking part in the tv programme where you had to see if you could live on state benefits. But you were caught with a £50 note in your bra. Not only did it run counter to the spirit and the point of the programme, it was also incredibly insulting to claimants.

And what about the fuss you made over benefit claimants who Tweet too much? Report them, to the DWP for Tweeting? "You should be out looking under tones for jobs; not tweeting." Next you'll be wanting to report them for spending too much time in the bathroom! Are you sure it's Bercow that's mad?

Of course your marriage is your business and it can't be easy to be married to someone who is suffering from a degenerative disease, but it was hardly good publicity that you left him. Nor was it good publicity that you have been having an affair with one of your married family friends.

Finally, I've seen you arrive for work in the Chamber looking like you were off for afternoon tea, or about to do a days washing. You really could try to smarten up a bit. Mr Cameron always has a smart blue suit on. You could try that.

All in all, you're not a shining example of what Dave is looking for in an MP, are you, Nad?

So, there you have it. You seem to be happy to dish it out, but you're not so good at taking it. I think you'd better toughen up dear.

Or, as I say, consider if you want to be part of the London branch of elderly Bullingdon Boys.


  1. I heard that she was previously a nurse ... mmm :P

  2. p.s - I suppose I ought comment on the substance of your article!!

    Yes, and yes to your final conclusions. I quite agree.

  3. Oh. dear, where to begin. Hard to refute any of the post. However, if I have to choose who to die for, Nadine get's my "Sophie's Choice" over shit Dave. In the film, of course, it was the lad who won out, as ever.

  4. tris

    Nadine Dorries is a copper bottomed nut and a vile one at that she is suitable for a tea party Canaanite or a lobotomy

  5. Fecking hell niko you ever gonna learn to spell


  6. Now now, Dean. Control yourself. She was indeed a nurse, according to Wikipedia, without which I would know nothing!!!! :)

    Thank you for your agreement.

  7. Oh lord, OR, I can't imagine anyone dying for Dave...

    What a waste of time that would be.

    I think Nadine would probably be a very short term interest to anyone. She was probably pretty when she was young, but she's not a keeper. Intellectually I'd say she was a bit of a turkey!

  8. Erm, yeah Niko. I was desperately trying to work what Canaan had to do with it. "Don't get all biblical on me now Niko", I was thinking.

    But, hey, what can you do with errant keyboards, huh?

    Thay gust seam to od whoat thee wint!

  9. She's got a brilliant set of knockers though !

    Spelyng tipp

    When you get the spelling wrong you get a red wiggle under your word. Sometimes it's wanting an Americanism but mostly it's the wrong spelyng .
    I've noticed our University student commentators spelll the wurser. Their page must be all wiggly red bottoms. Maybe they like this ;)
    I noticed a law student commenter posted earlier that he/ she was 'busy'. This is an obvious lie. Students are lazy and untidy and wouldn't get out of bed to make a cuppa soup if they were dying of starvation. 'Busy' ? What next ? Our resident EUology graduate claiming that he's Von Rumpey Pumpey's secret lovechild ?

  10. Ahhh.... yes, erm, quite so Monty.

    To erm, all of the above...

    Nah, actually, it was very funny and I won't even try to top it...coz I'd fail.

  11. Is it not utterly amazing that these people thought that all this would remain secret, just like it did in teh good old days... known only be a few trusted people who would never let it out.

    Now even if the newspapers won't print it, we can do it ourselves.

    I wonder what Cameron will say to this.

  12. Fifty pound note in her bra. I think she should be "frisked" regularly - just in case... I'm not too busy at the moment! Is that Tommy Sheridan's arm I see next to her?

  13. Tris,

    On a more serious note, regarding dying for Cameron. At present our armed forces are dying for Cameron in the farcical and futile Afghanistan campaign. Add to that the "collateral" damage to civilians there and in Libya and his little tiff with this harridan pales into insignificance.

  14. @brownlie

    LOL! Or is it yours? I can't tell!

  15. Nah, Dean... he's the one behind her with the name badge on, in case he forgets who he is.

  16. Ah yes, John...

    I'm sure that the job of "Frisker in Chief" to Her Majesty's Commons can be yours for the asking.

    You may find though, that Nicholas Soames is a full day's work!

    I agree completely with your sentiments concerning the wars, and that extends to the last prime minister, such as he was, and the one before that.

    Why, I have to ask, are we lumbered with such people?

  17. Mind you, it was incredibly sexist remark.

  18. Erm.. yes CH. That was very good.... I think...

  19. I remember Nadine Dorries's remark about MPs being driven to suicide by the pressure of accusations about fiddling expenses. I wrote to her and suggested that this would be a sort of Darwinian self-selection if it happened - but I doubted very much that it would, as the selection process was designed to weed out what ordinary people call conscience and to ensure that candidates had hides like a rhinoceros. That was perhaps a little unkind and lacking in empathy.

    We should not forget the reason why Ms. Dorries is under such heavy attack from what could fairly be called "the merchants of death" in the abortion (and euthanasia) industries.

    She (and Frank Field, I believe) made a proposal that women considering abortion should have independent advice. At present, such advice as they get is provided by the abortionist organisations which only get paid from the public purse when they carry out an abortion. As the Americans would say "Go figure".

    This is reckoned to be an issue of Conscience (see above) on which MPs have a free vote. Yet David Cameron took the unusual step of writing a letter to Conservative MPs, urging them to oppose this really rather modest proposal.

  20. Yes, I agree with what you say there Mr S.

    I think that if people require advice about whether they want to have a child or not, then at least that advice should be fair, and unbiased by financial considerations.

    It's hard to know where and how such advice could be made available. At one point I heard that there was some suggestion that it should be by church groups...again go figure.

    It is unfortunate that someone who is so lacking in conscience... (expenses, husband, lover, etc) and as roundly disliked as Dorries, should have been the one to introduce an amendment which dealt with such a serious subject. She, rather than the subject became the discussion point.

    Dorries is a joke, and abortion is, for most people, I'd have thought, not a laughing matter

    It's also a shame that the boor Cameron saw fit to intervene in a matter of "conscience". I can only imagine that he thought that, in common with himself, too few of his MPs knew the word.

    As for your letter. Spot on. I suspect that some of the lower order rioters sent to prison for nothing more that pinching bottles of water, may be thinking of suicide.

    But it's interesting that none of them, from the great and the good, to to less great and allegedly not so good, to only wish to commit suicide when they got caught and had to face teh CONSEQUENCES.

    Mr Skinner for example probably gave no thought to suicide. Turning up for work every day, despite illness, and never claiming a brass bean must have meant that he was not worried that the next day his name would be splattered all over the Telegraph.

    There's a lesson in there for them... but of course they won't learn it. They are much too stupid and much too greedy.

  21. Tris,

    It seems to me that there are two things missing from our leaders - and not just politicians.
    They are conscience and the fear of consequences,

    The first, of course, is a matter of upbringing, teaching and example. Whilst we all have it to some extent, it needs a moral framework in which to grow strong. Otherwise, Original Sin wins every time.

    The fear of consequences has been largely abolished too. Only a few of the expense fiddlers were brought to book and the sentences they received did not mean what the judge said. They also continue in the possession of pension rights, accumulated whilst they were fiddling. Within a short time they will be able to leave their criminal records out of any job application or similar record, under legislation designed for their "rehabilitation".

    In the business world too, much the same has happened but more so. The bankers not only socialised their losses but continued to earn bonuses whilst doing so - because it was "important to keep the best people". As they were so clever as to get us all into the mess of their making (with help from Prudent Gordon and his "tripartite" regulation), they would be just the people I would have liked to go to our competitors!
    My own suggestion for banking regulation would be the removal of limited liability from directors and senior executives. They would then go down to utter ruin if their banks did. But they are within the most special, privileged sector of that charmed circle of political and financial power. So it won't happen.

    Like you, I have a soft spot for the Beast of Bolsover.

  22. Well Mr S. I can say that I heartily agree with everything you just said...

    So I shall only add that Dennis said of his attendance at the Commons that it was a job, like his old job down the pit. If he missed a shift at the mines he was docked pay and got into trouble. He didn't see why it should be any different from that at his new place of employment (another pit).

    He also refuses to "pair" with a anyone. He doesn't see why he should NOT be at work just to allow them away to their boardrooms and clubs.

    Lovely man. Not always right, but his heart is always in the right place, and he appears to have a real moral compass, not a cardboard one made for publicity photographs.
