Nadine Dorries wrote a self-serving pile of rubbish at Comment is Free.

Same old selective memory.

In my seven and a half years as an MP I think it is important to state that I have never taken a single day away from parliament on one of the many jollies most MPs enjoy to various parts of the world.

Oh rilly???

6. Overseas visits

11-15 June 2006, to Israel hosted by Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI). CFI contributed the costs of flights, accommodation and some meals. The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Official Guests Department) contributed to the costs of travel inside Israel, some accommodation and meals. (Registered 29 June 2006)

No, there are absolutely no foreign jollies on Nadine’s record whatsoever.

For the record, Parliament was in session between the 12th and 15th June, 2006.

Matters debated that week, while Dorries was away on the jolly she’s conveniently forgotten included the lack of progress in implementing the recommendations of the Bichard Inquiry (at PMQs) , the Electoral Administration Bill, Lords amendments to the Work and Families Bill, the Fraud Bill and a lengthy ‘European Affairs’ debate on the fallout from the failure of the EU to push through its constitutional treaty, which took lace in advance of discussions at the European Council on what would eventually become the Lisbon Treaty.

Nothing important, then.

Did she not also visit Equatorial Guinea as a guest of President Obiang with (amongst others) Steve Baker? Not sure it was ‘in parliamentary time’ but the whole thing stank.

Her all expenses paid trip to Equatorial Guinea was in August 2011.

You can read her account of her holid- er… – fact finding mission based at Equatorial Guinea’s 5 star hotel at this link
