Lib Dem chief whip Alistair Carmichael wins Tweet of the Day

by Stephen Tall on November 6, 2012

Here’s the Lib Dem chief whip, Alistair Carmichael, responding to this morning’s bombshell news that Tory MP Nadine Dorries has signed up to take part in the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Ge Me Out Of Here:

Here’s a brief reminder of how Lembit’s spell on the show finished up: ‘I didn’t want this to end’: Lembit Opik becomes the second star to be evicted from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Interestingly, Nadine’s dalliance with C-list fame has earned her little kudos from The Sun’s political editor, Tom Newton Dunn:

MAD Nad has a whole lot of questions to answer today, because she has sparked a serious democratic problem. Besides missing the December 5 mini budget, who will represent her constituents for a month now she has flounced off to the other side of the world? Dorries has also prompted questions for her boss David Cameron. Did he give her permission? If not, can he really allow her to keep the Tory whip?

Now kicked out of the party, I hope this doesn’t mean she will drop out of the program. She will make an utter fool of herself and the Tories.
Like many others I really would like to watch her enduring the bush tucker trials but every penny she generates through votes will go towards a ‘pro life’ charity, a cause I do not want give to.
