She Does What She Wants

The Sun reports today that:
FEISTY Tory Nadine Dorries is about to upset David Cameron AND her constituents — by going on I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

The £65,738-a-year MP, who dubbed the PM and Chancellor George Osborne “arrogant posh boys”, will spend the best part of a MONTH in the Aussie jungle.
Sources say the Mid Bedfordshire MP will be paid “a maximum of £40,000”.
Undoubtedly much anger will be directed her way in light of this decision, and not without good reason:

MAD Nad has a whole lot of questions to answer today, because she has sparked a serious democratic problem.
Besides missing the December 5 mini budget, who will represent her constituents for a month now she has flounced off to the other side of the world? Dorries has also prompted questions for her boss David Cameron. Did he give her permission? If not, can he really allow her to keep the Tory whip?
A serious democratic problem? Well yes quite, but what are we going to do about it? Angry words, tweets and comments in newspaper articles are all very well and good...but they won't stop Nadine going, they won't kick her out of her seat and they won't stop her getting paid. What we need is a solution...and thankfully we have one: the Harrogate Agenda. If implemented we could stop it.


  1. I can think of another solution TBF...

    We could send Cameron and crew off to the jungle with her.

    Well if it's good enough for Belgium, it's good enough for us... Surely?

  2. That's very tempting... Cameron in the jungle :-) Your comment does beg another thought...if she can take a month off then it's an admission that MPs don't do a great deal...one has to wonder why. Perhaps the answer does indeed lie in Belgium

  3. Send them all off to the jungle. Don't pay their expenses home.
