Apparently Nadine Dorries has said doesn't like arrogant men who think they're born to rule! Perhaps she's not really at home in the Conservative party!

See here

Which is ALMOST as funny as her last week press release where she described herself as a left wing feminist!

See here

Very skilled with the media though she is, I do wonder if she'll be forced to resign when she returns from the jungle.

Or ITV could do us all a favour and leave her in Aus. <_<

but...but..we NEED her....at least you know what she thinks, doesn't necessarily toe the party line, provides entertainment amongst those of you who have not yet had the same level of endorsement from the electorate.

She's always telling people what to think though.

It's positively Orwellian.

Frankly they could put a six month out of date sausage in a blue rosette up for election in her constituency and it would be elected for the conservatives. That's the problem with safe seats regardless of the party. You are more likely to get extreme views coming up through and people just won't vote for any other party. It was a similar problem in Hull with Prescott. Most people I knew from Hull hated him but they wouldn't vote for any party other than labour.

So no don't get all high and mighty over electoral endorsement. It's not usually about who you are or what you stand for, just which colour rosette you wear and where you nail your flag.

But she's elected to "toe the party line".

well, no. She is expressing her opinion and fulfilling her mandate as an elected politician. I certainly don't recall her coming on here and telling you what to think...I think.

High and mighty? Moi? On what basis do you vote? for the party or the candidate?

She is expressing her opinion


By standing up in Parliament and attempting to change other people's.

Very rude of her, I'm sure you'll agree.

For the candidate... though I'm probably a fool for doing that as the party generally overrides the individual's will. Sadly though most people vote for the party, and in fact in modern politics seem to think its more similar to a presidential election and vote for the party leader. (and yes)

good, I'm sure you are right, though why assume that most people vote for the party? The "feeling" I have is that in the Commissioner elections, the Independents will do quite well. As for Mad Nad, I think maybe Andrew Mitchell did what he did just to avoid having to "whip" her.

This will annoy many people on here but I liked Nick Cleggs joke comment yesterday at PMQ's that he thought sending her to the Aus jungle to eat bugs and live rough was the new chief whip stamping his authority on the situation.

Are you only allowed to try and change people's opinions so they match your own if you're a professional?

No jolly amateurs in your world?

Politicians attempting to make jokes usually falls massively flat, even though they get braying laughter from their own side in the house.

Most of them are about as funny as, well, you know the metaphor.
