I see that Sam Coates – of Tory Home – appears to be wandering around the blogosphere and making ‘It’s not true’ comments in response to the Indy’s gossipy remarks about the speculation that Tim Mongomerie and Nadine Dorries may have been playing hide the sausage on the QT…
.,..as if it matters in the slightest whether they have or haven’t in the first place.
Sorry Sam, but apart from the entertainment value of seeing you wandering around making unnecessary denials, I really couldn’t give a toss what the pair of them may or may not be getting up to in private. I just figured, on seeing it in the Indy this morning, that it might make for an amusing, if trivial, little wind-up.
Which it clearly has…
Despite Sam’s comment:
Guido and Iain have better standards than Oliver Duff
It seems that the Tim n’ Nad show might well be worthy of Guido’s attention after all.
Tory duo make for a fine romance
They are two of David Cameron’s most outspoken Tory critics. But now Westminster tongues are wagging about a flourishing friendship between bubbly blonde Nadine Dorries, 50-year-old MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, and Tim Montgomerie, 14 years her junior, who runs the influential ConservativeHome website.
Ms Dorries has attacked Cameron’s stance on grammar schools while Montgomerie has accused him of alienating working-class Tories.
The MP, a divorced mother-of-three, has only added to the tearoom rumours by sporting a fashionable bob. When she first unveiled her new hairstyle, she trilled: “I was complimented by eight MPs and two ministers.
“I preened my way through the day under a barrage of praise. The compliments ranged from ‘love the hair’ to ‘gorgeous hair, sweetie’.”
Montgomerie, 36, denies a romance. “Nadine and I are friends, but we are not going out,” he says. “People may have seen us lunching and jumped to conclusions.”
Isn’t Guido already off on one at the moment about the Indy reproducing stories without giving them their proper attribution/source?
