No.10 Confirm Nadine is Not Security Threat to PM

An unnamed No. 10 insider has briefed Nick Watt of the Guardian:

“Nadine Dorries has made clear that she does not think the prime minister should be murdered. But she is well known for having unusual views and unusual ways of expressing them. There will no change to the security arrangements for the prime minister. We were never genuinely concerned about a threat to the prime minister’s life.”

Unlikely to be a sense of humour failure, Downing Street staffers are clearly wittier than previously thought. Either way the original story that Guido ran this afternoon made it clear that the comment was made metaphorically. Given that Nadine is not the only Tory MP thinking these political thoughts, conference could well be a metaphorical bloodbath for the PM.

UPDATE:

Dorries Should Defect

It does amuse Guido that those so quick to dismiss the views of Nadine Dorries in very personal terms because they disagree with her, have showered her with praise today for going for Cameron’s jugular on today’s Daily Politics. If a sustained bitter campaign of bile was unleashed in a similar way from the right on a female Labour MP, the kickback would be very different. If Nadine really holds her party leadership in such low regard, is it not time for it to send an even clearer messageTwitter would love it…

Dorries PMQs Moment

Bunny Dorries

Guido is intrigued by the imminent arrival of the Playboy Club in London. But not as excited as some it seems. One of Nadine Dorries’ many loyal internet fans signed her up for membership:

He’s a little disappointed by her response though:

Sounds like a bargain this end…

"I'm Not a Politically Correct Feminist, But…"

In a campaign worthy of Jo Swinson it seems Nadine has declared war on London buses displaying 14ft ads of half-naked women trying to flog underwear. “It is becoming more hardcore and shocking. Since when did it become acceptable to have larger-than-life posters of scantily clad women moving up and down every street?” And the giant shirtless Ronaldo/Armani ad is fine though?

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
