Nadine Dorries has an inexplicable following amongst some elements of the Conservative party, which following seems to be basedon her willingness to spout the most extreme anti-Abortion rhetorics and her “plain speaking” “woman of the people” style which impresses some. In that way she’s a bit like Sarah Palin.
She’s more like Sarah Palin in the way she’s an absloute embarrassment to the Conservative party whenever she’s put near a microphone. (oh, and that she offers rather confused explanations when accused of personally benefitting from her political career).
Hat-tip to Chris Paul who is being indefatigable in getting her to explain her expenses as her “plain speaking” kicks up dust on Today and Radio 5.
