Nadine Dorries

Datum narození: 21. květen 1957

Nadine Vanessa Dorries is a British Conservative politician. She was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Mid Bedfordshire at the 2005 general election.

Born in Liverpool, she began work as a trainee nurse and subsequently became a medical representative. During her early career, she spent a year in Zambia as the head of a community school. After returning to the UK, she founded Company Kids Ltd; which provided child day-care services for working parents. She sold the company in 1998.

Dorries was elected to the House of Commons at the 2005 general election as MP for the safe Conservative seat of Mid-Bedfordshire, with a majority of 11,355 votes. She is on the political right of the Conservative Party and has introduced several unsuccessful Private Member's Bills, including attempts to reduce the time limit for abortions in the UK and changes to the rules regarding counselling for the women involved, and the advocacy of sexual abstinence for girls in sex education. She is an opponent of the current Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, and has attempted to have him removed from the post. She also clashed with the former party leader, David Cameron, describing him and George Osborne as "two arrogant posh boys". In 2008, Dorries won The Spectator magazine's Readers' Representative Award, and in 2012 she was voted best MP on Twitter by the politics.co.uk website.On 6 November 2012, she was suspended from the parliamentary Conservative Party owing to her decision to take part in reality TV programme, I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! without informing the Chief Whip. The Conservative Party whip was returned to Dorries on 8 May 2013 and she was re-admitted to the parliamentary party.Journalist Quentin Letts has accused other MPs of feeling "envy" for her flamboyance and publicity skills, and in 2012 Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman wrote about "how she stands out in Parliament – a tropical bird in amongst all that dull, grey, plumage on the Commons benches." In 2013, Adrian Hilton wrote that Dorries "radiates the sort of plain-speaking, unstuffy approachability which is rapidly becoming rather attractive to the disaffected and disillusioned masses".
