The Blog of
Nadine Dorries
Done in...
Posted Friday, 30 March 2007 at 10:29

I really want to blog about Brussels yesterday, but I only have five. So I am going to do it justice and wait until I can sit down and do it properly. It really was an eye opener.


I had to get up at four to get the Eurostar, having, if you remember, gone to bed at four the previous morning after the votes and dashing back to Beds to pack – my body clock really hasn’t got a clue what’s going on.


I have always known I could smell a rat at fifty yards, well I can smell a gravy train at ten, and I can’t wait to tell you about it.


But first, to those have you who have gone all precious about my telling Tony and Cherie to go and get their own blog, listen up –


You have no idea how many messages Tony and Cherie sent me, because I didn’t post them all. After they had sent me one on one particular occasion, they sent another straight after telling me not to post it or I would be in trouble, and I would have been, big time!


The reason for them to get their own blog is that on it they can say what they like, without the inhibitions of posting on an MPs website. The person who was really Tony and Cherie is very welcome to post here – quick message to him – don’t be daft, send me messages, of course I’m not, it takes a lot more that that believe me, however, you could be on to something and could do well with your own site.


I have to go, constituency duties call. I then have to go over to Cambridge for a 24hr session with the public policy group to discuss healthcare policy and solutions, and then I am going to sit in this chair and tell you about Brussels, and then I am going to spend Saturday night with my girls and friends and drink more than one glass of wine in the pub, and then I am spending Sunday in bed. Any complaints? I hope not, because I am done in….. Whoops, no I'm not - civic service in Ampthill Sunday morning, never mind, nice try!

As one of those who got 'precious' about T & C , my concern was one of censorship. The internet has opened up a whole new world to communicate with each other and express our opinions.I, for one am very appreciative of this format to express my humble opinion and indeed of the work you do.It is very refreshing to be able to communicate with an MP on a virtual one to one basis.Perhaps it really was someone from their camp trying to goad you, but you are the one who decides what comments appear with the press of a button.

Yes, Nadine, I have a complaint-you work too hard. Slow down a bit! If you want someone to walk the dogs, put your bins out or bring you a cuppa in bed................

James, No one was trying to goad me, it was simply the fact that the comments were becoming longer than the blogs and they were becoming slightly unprintable! They are a scream and he really should think about having his own site -

If they were that good, Nadine why are you automatically assuming it's a he. Your letting the sisterhood down here girlie!

I hope you are going to tell us about what you learned that might help dairy farmers.

Glyn,I would guess Nadine would say it's the farmers rather than the cows being milked by the EU.
