Nadine Slams Clegg Despite Him Saving Her Seat

One of the more vocal critics of the boundary reviews was Nadine Dorries, whose seat of Mid-Bedfordshire was set to be abolished. Guido thought he would give her a call to get her views on Clegg’s decision and ended up breaking the news to her that she will still have a constituency at the next election. Though personally relieved, Nads was far from grateful to Clegg:

“It just shows how shallow the LibDems are. If they are dropping this because they didn’t get Lords reform then it epitomises who they are and what they are all about – which is self. Nick Clegg stood up in Parliament and said he supported the changes but now this is about them and not the country. He should be doing what is in the national interest, not his self-interest.”

A view shared by pretty much every Tory Guido has spoken to this afternoon.
