As the season of goodwill is upon us, I treat you to the thoughts of Conservative MP Nadine Dorries whom, along with three Tory colleagues and a Labour MP, failed to turn up at the House of Commons to put their questions to the Deputy Prime Minister.
Ms Dorries explained her absence thus:
Nick Clegg is an inconsistent, bad-tempered, sulky, misguided, badly informed, opportunistic, political irrelevance. Why would I want to attend the chamber to ask a man of such poor political attributes a parliamentary question?
Makes one wonder why she had tabled the question. I feel somewhat sorry for Mr Clegg: that he should be singled out for such opprobrium. I can think of other politicians (and so-called politicians) who are equally deserving of Ms Dorries venom.
