    Default A new lowpoint: Sitting government MP signs on for reality TV show.

    Well this is depressing. We've had an MP in the past appear on a reality show, but not one associated with the main parties.

    Tory MP Nadine Dorries is under fire over her decision to join ITV1's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.

    Ms Dorries, who represents Mid Bedfordshire, will be the first MP to take part in the show.

    But she could be in Australia, where it is filmed, for a month, potentially missing important Commons votes.

    Giving her reaction, Home Secretary Theresa May said: "Frankly, I think an MP's job is in their constituency and in the House of Commons"
    How could she think this is a good idea? She's going to miss critical votes on Europe and y'know....representing her constituents for the month.

    It's also damaging for the reformist voices in the Tory party pushing to get more women onto shortlists to have a second female MP in a matter of months treating the job like a vehicle for their private interests.

    Cameron's probably quite happy about it, it gives him an excuse to push another candidate in the next election (He doesn't like Dorries, and she doesn't like him), but the entire thing is embarrassing for the government, and will continue to be an embarrassment for the period she's over there.

    Crazy. Surely they can stop her in some way ? Emergency meeting or something and fire her out before it goes too far. I don't think she's just embarrassing the CP she's making a mockery of the Parliamentary System over there.

    Can you imagine one of our bunch going over. Jasus, maybe they'd take Reilly for a month to try and keep him out of trouble.

    She has now been suspended by the Tory party.

    Was Healy Rae Junior a TD when he was in a Pravda Celebrity soap opera ?

    Can't remember now.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
