The Blog of
Nadine Dorries
Guest blogging
Posted Friday, 19 October 2007 at 23:17


 It doesn’t matter whether I am in the supermarket or in the gym, the desire which drove me to become an MP drives others to ‘buttonhole’ me and tell me what to do to in order to put the country right.


I love these exchanges and was particularly struck by one lady last week who said “I wish I had your blog and all those people reading what I said, I would never stop writing”. Mmmm, interesting.


That set me thinking - I am going to post a guest blog every Saturday from a constituent who wants to get something off their chest.


I think I am going to start with my hairdresser Debbie, who has more to say about education than your average hairdresser that’s for sure. Then I am going to ask Steve from ABC if he would like to do something, Penny from the town council, Mike from the post office..


All non party political I hasten to add, and I would have to get it checked over for content to make sure it’s not libellous, but hey, I am going to let my constituents loose on my blog on a Saturday.


If anyone wants to contribute, you have to email me 400 words and a photo with a brief description of who you are what you do etc, with a telephone number and your off, with a few hundred thousand readers at your finger tips.


Arabella Huffingham, just eat your heart out!

I think you are missing something here nadine, you pack more into one day than most of us do into a year.

I was going to say that if this gives you a chance for a well earned break each Saturday, then great. But I fear this just gives you many times the work.For heaven's sake, 23:17pm you're writting this? You're truly an outstanding MP and human being, but at the rate you're going, burn out is a distinct possibility.Can't you not take up something more relaxing- Extreme Sports, for example?

only 400 words, is that a strict limit?

I agree with Jane, good idea but a lot of work for you.

Get yourself lots of Kit-Kats Nadine and have lots of breaks. I get exhausted just reading your blogs.Iain Dale was blogging yesterday on the misconception that MP's have too many 'holidays'. YOU work toooooo much.

Sounds like this is only open to people in your village.

With friends like AH from America who needs enemies? You may be approaching middle life but you're definitely not senile :-)
