What can we say about Nadine Dorries that hasn’t already been said? Fiercely loyal to Boris Johnson, fearful in the celebrity jungle and frequently being quite, to be put it tactfully, a bit wayward at times.
Now she teared up when announcing her time in parliament would be coming to an end.
Another great mind leaving the Commons….
Speaking on her TalkTV show, the former culture secretary explained the reasons she was leaving parliament.
She said: “Those MPs who drank the Kool-Aid and got rid of Boris Johnson are already asking themselves the question: who next? And I’m afraid that the lack of cohesion, the infighting and occasionally the sheer stupidity from those who think we could remove a sitting prime minister, who secured a higher percentage of the vote share than Tony Blair did in 1997, just three short years ago …
“That they could do that and the public would let us get away with it. I’m afraid it’s this behaviour that I now just have to remove myself from. And so, despite it being a job that I’ve loved for every year that I’ve done it, I’m now off. Oh gosh, I’ve just said it out loud, there’s no going back now.”
She was also rude about her current party. “The elite, the faux political intellectuals, you know who I’m talking about – those who believe they know better than anyone else, bet everything on a Rishi bounce … but it never came and it was never going to,” she said.
Fom these reactions, not so much…
Oh dear Nads…
