THIS is what Nadine Dorries MP said about Speaker Martin less than a week ago:
I am awash with disappointment as the reality dawned on me, that the coveted chair and the man to whom as Speaker I have always been loyal, is without honour.
One could be forgiven for assuming, therefore, that, having jumped on her party’s anti-Speaker bandwagon, she might support her party against the government at the first vote today.
Alas, it was not to be. My Commons snout tells me that she arrived in the chamber a bit too late and had the lobby door slammed ignominiously in her face as she attempted to vote. Tut, tut…
I am awash with disappointment as the reality dawned on me, that the well-known blogger and the woman to whom I have always been slightly critical, is without a watch.
