On Friday evening came the bad news for David Cameron and George Osborne

Nadine Dorries has received the backing of the Mid-Beds Conservative Association, which has voted unanimously for her to have her whip restored.

I can hear the facepalms at CCHQ from here. For the rest of us, this marks a continuation of the hilarious drama between Dorries and the Tory leadership.

It will be very difficult now for the Tory high command to defy the local party and refuse to restore the whip to Ms Dorries.

It also means that any time they attack her it will look like they’re trying to exact revenge.

In fact, instead of taking her out, Dorries has managed to back Osborne and Cameron into a corner while keeping her seat (though the local CA won’t make a decision on if she’ll represent Mid Bedfordshire as a Tory for at least a year).

Meanwhile, she has also been nominated as ‘pinhead of the year‘ by the Taxpayers’ Alliance.

Pros
1, She is disliked by the taxpayers alliance. I don’t know why?
2. She irritates the Tory high command. I do know why ?

Cons
I was feeling sorry for her but when she was on TV, she actually stated she had got over the issues of the day. The last time I was that nauseous was when Galloway was in a cat suit putting over the issues.

2. Man on Clapham Omnibus

I like Naddine. She will always remind me of the final quote of ‘The thick of it’

turn coat politican don’t always defect to a winning party

Chris brocklebank defected from the tories in 81 ,2years after 1979 when they won a big majority , to the SDP, Alan amos defected from tory to labour in 1992, despite the tories winning another majority,
leaving your party without the guarantee of a safe seat like the SDP did ,showed independence
