Bryant's Nads Mix Up

Chris Bryant has got his knickers in a twist after Nadine Dorries mistakenly accused him of being a video star:

Nads was delighted to be able to set the record straight when Guido reminded her that she may have been thinking about these snaps, thankfully in still rather than moving form:

As ever Guido is happy to clear up the misunderstanding…

Stewards' Inquiry: Can You Hear 'Crackerjack' at PMQs?

A steward’s inquiry is required to determine if Guido’s tip that the word ‘Crackerjack’ would be said during today’s PMQs came good. As Nadine Dorries congratulated the Speaker for his new role as chancellor of Bedfordshire University, Guido reckons you can hear the word being uttered in the background. So will Paddy Power be paying out?

Nads Woos Tory MPs Ahead of Deputy Speaker Vote

Going on to refer to Hopkins’ personal blue on blue Twitter attack on Philip Davies last month. Copying and pasting whips’ lines to take in public arguments with with your own MPs apparently helps your chances of promotion. Hopkins and Nadine’s 1922 Committee battle wounds are clearly still sore. She can put probably him down as a maybe…

Nadine Solicits Votes

Nadine has emailed every Tory MP today in her bid to become Deputy Speaker. It’s quite something:

From: DORRIES, Nadine
Sent: 07 October 2013 14:50
Subject: FROM NADINE DORRIES MP
Importance: High

I will be writing personally, however, I am emailing now to ask if you would possibly consider voting for me in the forthcoming Deputy Speaker election and, if you cannot give me your first preference vote, would you consider giving me your second?

The paramount quality for a Deputy Speaker position is impartiality. I don’t think anyone can doubt that I am possibly the most impartial MP in the House of Commons and I do believe I have demonstrated my commitment to fairness via my role as a committee chair on the Speakers Panel.

In terms of my political commitment, I was the only victim of the smear gate emails who could attack Damian McBride, which I did for five consecutive days and nights. The attack culminated in my publicly demanding an apology from Gordon Brown, which I received. Damian McBride left No 10 the same day.

Since the 2009 expenses crisis I have been a known defender of MPs and continue to tackle IPSA on a regular basis.

I have a record of achievement in Parliament that has resulted in the number of late term abortions dropping year on year since my first vote in 2008 and the offer of abortion counselling being included in DOH guidelines following the campaign in 2011. It was always about winning over hearts and minds in the public, not votes in Parliament. If you don’t agree with my position on late term abortion you may see this as a way to shut me up!

In terms of the profile of women within the party, it would certainly be helpful for the party to be seen to elect a working class, northern female. This is an issue David Cameron is very aware of in the lead up to the General Election.

I haven’t agreed a pact with Nigel but would stand down without hesitation should he return, as a matter of decency.

I am obviously not the No 10 candidate, something which in the election of a Deputy Speaker should not exist.

Whichever way you vote, thanks for reading this far and I hope if you feel you can’t vote for me, you would consider giving me your second vote.

Yours with best wishes,

Nadine

Apparently she is not the Number 10 candidate. Who’da thunk it? Guido’s money is on Burns still…

Nads v Eleanor Laing For Deputy Speaker

As tipped by Guido, Nadine Dorries is throwing her hat into the ring for the Deputy Speaker job. Which certainly makes the race all the more interesting. Odds are shortening on Eleanor Laing, who has announced she is going to stand, is popular and hotly-tipped by Tory colleagues. She tells Guido she only thought of going for the job when she saw her name on this blog’s runners and riders. She denies she is Number 10’s candidate to the Standard.

IPSA V Nadine Sub-letting Allegation and a Double Petrol Claim

IPSA have begun naming MPs that are under investigation finally, and much to delight of Twitter, the first person in the frame is Nadine:

“The Compliance Officer for the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has reason to believe that Ms Nadine Dorries MP may have been paid an amount under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses that should not have been allowed.  An investigation will be conducted into claims submitted under the following areas of the Third and Fourth Editions of the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses: Accommodation Expenditure; Travel and Subsistence.”

Guido understands that the allegations centre around an allegation of subletting due to a jump in electricity bills, Nadine says that is because her daughter was staying as is her right. Another travel claim for petrol has also been submitted twice.  Nadine tells Guido she’s innocent and will fight it all the way.

Twitter Media Bitch Fight: Nadine Flies Off the Handle

Guido ran out of time for this earlier in the week, but it is worth revisiting. On Tuesday Nadine was well and truly trounced in a twitter spat with the Sun’s David Wooding:

That’s what they call having your rear end handed to you…

Nadine on Mitchell: “He’s a B*****d!” Daily Star Sunday Column Now Online

Yesterday Guido revealed Nadine Dorries’ stunned response when he broke the news to her that Andrew Mitchell had been on holiday in Antigua while she was in the jungle:

“NADINE Dorries and the foul-mouthed former Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell, who lost his old job over pleb-gate, have been having a bit of a verbal tussle over whether or not he gave her permission to have time off for the jungle. Guido broke the news to Nadine when she got out after a week in the camp that Mitchell himself had been on a Caribbean holiday in Antigua during the same week. Her stunned response on learning this after all the grief Mitchell caused her? “He’s a b*****d…””

Nadine Evicted

It was all going so well for Nads, but last night she faced the public vote and was evicted from the jungle:

Mitchell v Dorries: Bushtucker Denial

This Morning Nads’ tweeting daughters Jennifer and Cassie appeared on Daybreak to defend their jungle-venturing mum. They had a rather awkward story to tell about a certain former chief whip:

“She did ask for the month off, she did, she requested it from the Chief Whip at the time, that she’s going to go away from a month, that it will be controversial, and he said that’s fine.”

Andrew Mitchell has responded by denying that he ever gave permission for Nadine to go down under.[…] Read the rest

Labour quickly went on the attack when Nadine flew to the jungle. Chris Bryant went as far as suggesting a by-election for missing recess. So what do they recommend for their own parliament dodger?

Conservative Voice Distance Themselves From Nadine

No.10 might have seen the funny side of Nadine Dorries’ metaphorical “kill Cameron” comment yesterday, but Conservative Voice are nonetheless taking no chances :

“Everybody associated with Conservative Voice is committed to working with the Conservative Party and its leadership to secure a majority in 2015.

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
