Still fertile childless woman attacks no longer fertile woman who has children

Miss Dorries should know that it isn’t where you come from, it’s where you are going. But then, perhaps that is the problem – sadly for Dorries, she is going nowhere, and sadly for us, she seems to be going nowhere very slowly.

You might want to think about that Bryony……

Why one’s occupation should matter at the scene of an accident – unless, of course, you are a doctor – is beyond me, but then, most of Dorries’s reasoning is.

A nurse I believe?

  1. This bullying of Nadine Dorries puzzles me too. OK, she’s not the brightest MP, but few of them are. She got a bit of stick on the expenses scandal.
    On the other hand she does have principles she fights for and didn’t get her job because of her mother.

    She’s an appalling Christian Fascist of the worst USian order, a liar and statist.

    She may indeed have sincerely held principles and fight enthusiastically for them but they are principles I’d want to see as far from the HoC as reasonable. I’d take a Skinner or even a Sheridan over a Dorries. Not a Joyce however.

    Ah, who’s my MP? Sulks …

  3. didn’t get her job because of her mother

    True – she got her position by cosying up to Baroness Morris when her kids went to Ampleforth – as did Morris’ – during the period that Morris was the Tory vice-chair responsible for candidate selection.

    Dorries was twice parachuted into seats against the wishes of the local Tory Association.

    As for the suggestion that Dorries is bullied, don’t make me laugh. Dorries gets stick because she is:

    a) a bullshitter – and not a very good one at that, and

    b) incapable of engaging with even reasoned criticism by any means other than attempting to smear her critics.

    As for being a nurse, the last time Dorries did any actual nursing Hattie Jacques was still Matron.

    Seriously, Tim will know perfectly well that I profoundly disagree with his position on abortion. Nevertheless, I respect him and his position because its one that he expresses openly, honestly and without deceit.

    The same cannot be said for Dorries, at all, and this is very well documented and also a key reason why she is afforded so little respect.

  4. That last quote is taken out of context, Tim. Uncharacteristically unfair of you. The context is that Dorries didn’t identify herself as an MP at the scene, because she was afraid bystanders wouldn’t trust her. The writer is pointing out that it was unnecessary for her to do so anyway. I would add that if her instinct was to do so, she’s obviously an incredible narcissist. One shouldn’t turn basic human decency into self promotion or a party political.

  5. Comments 6 & 7 take care of the Queen of Bad Faith pretty well. I would like to add to 8 though: Bryony Gordon’s piece on Dorries makes no reference to either party’s reproductive status, whereas her next item on comment of Lucy Worsley does. Were you getting a bit tired and confused? Or do you assume all attacks on Dorries are based on her position in the abortion controversy rather than her more fundamental flaws?

    Tim adds: No, I was thinking that you can’t call someone with children someone with no future. For they are that very future.

  6. No, I was thinking that you can’t call someone with children someone with no future. For they are that very future.

    Although in Dorries’ case, thoughts of adding a little chlorine to the gene pool spring immediately to mind. 😉

    Do we have evidence that the sprogs are as defective as the sprogee? They might be perfectly sensible young ladies.

  8. “No, I was thinking that you can’t call someone with children someone with no future. For they are that very future”

    Have you got Whitney Houston on in the background? You’re not wrong, but…

    The piece discusses a notorious (I think that’s a fair adjective) politician for recent political comments, very helpfully attacking her party’s leaders on a particular political vulnerability when they have suffered a sequence of political blows and shortly before a set of elections where the party is already expected to have a tough time.

    I would have thought most people would understand the conclusion to be that it was the political future of the MP that was looking limited.

    And I am not sure the “culture-wars catfight” tone of your post’s title quite matches the wholesome message intended.

    (Apologies for veering towards tone-troll territory. Just promise you are not softening us up for a “Welcome to UKIP, Nadine” post!)
