Steve McCabe MP reported Nadine Dorries MP to the standards commission of parliament for taking time off from her constituency work to take part in “I‘m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!” – a reality TV competition in the jungle with creepy crawly, reptilian based challenges for food and our amusement.
Nadine responded in kind on twitter , having been voted off the programme, saying he only had an attendance of 63% so could not criticise her. He pointed out he was recovering this year from open heart surgery. Under doctor’s orders he rested for months, and worked from his constituency while not traveling to London to attend parliamentary sessions.
Unfortunately for Nadine, that clarification went over her head:
So much for building bridges with her critics …
In other news a dead MP is revealed as not being prosecuted for abusing children in the 1970s. Wonder which story will lead in tabloids.
