The Ballad of Glenda Gobshite

I can’t help but be rather amused by the ongoing catfight between Nadine Dorries and Recess Monkey of which Tim Ireland has helpfully provided a running commentary. On the one hand RM does look to have pushed the envelope of good taste a little in digging out the […]

Pass the sickbag

While others take the Tory hypocritosphere to task for all the usual reasons, a quick visit to Nadine Dorries’s website, CiP (Comment is Prohibited) show her to be reaching for the literary emetics with all her usual lack of restraint. For me personaly (sic), the most difficult part […]

Miss Nadine Regrets

Tim and Garry have both picked up on Nadine Dorries’ sudden decision to turn off the comments facility on her ‘blog’: No More Comments Posted Thursday, 1 November 2007 at 00:00 I am no longer going to post comments on my blog. Please don’t send any more comments […]

Hehehehe… (updated)

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 […]

Just Good Friends?

From the Indy’s media diary… MOVING ON to more cheerful affairs of the heart. Cyberspace’s one-handed surfers keep the words “internet” and “romance” estranged from one another, but there are, nevertheless, touching tales to be found on the web. is a (rather good) Tory site edited by […]

Dr Anand’s Casebook

[…]

The thin end of the wedge (strategy).

Yes, I know fisking Nadine Dorries is yet another exercise is shooting tuna in a bucket with a 12 gauge, but this nonsense on abortion fully deserves the complete works… So, the Roman Catholic Church has gone nuclear on abortion. What, they want to start nuking doctors? As […]

A rich vein of ignorance…

Every so often, as a Labour Party member, you come across a Tory who is an absolute godsend – if you’ll excuse the use of religious allusion by a confirmed atheist. Back in the Thatcher days you were spoiled for choice although no one ever quite came close […]

Mystic Nadine has amnesia…

Remember Mystic Nadine? You know, Nadine Dorries, the Tory MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, who had me in stitches with her hilariously bad grasp of statistics only a touch over a week or so. Well, Nadine’s back and this time its amnesia… Simon Mayo: Did you vote for the control […]

Mystic Nadine.

According to Iain Dale, ‘Nadine Dorries is a Tory MP with a sense of humor’ – which is news to me (not the sense of humour but the fact that she’s a Tory MP). Still on the strength of these comments, I can’t help but agree with his […]
