A few weeks ago we submitted a complaint to the Parliamentary Standards Commission about the Tory MP Nadine Dorries and her using her blog to attack MPs of other parties. Its against the rules dontcha know?
Local newspapers have started to pick up the story…
A complaint has been lodged against Mid Beds MP Nadine Dorries regarding the way she uses her website.
Political activist and journalist Sunny Hundal claims Mrs Dorries has used the site to launch “a stream of personal attacks on and comments about members of other political parties”.
According to parliamentary regulations, websites funded at taxpayers’ expense are explicitly forbidden from party political activities or campaigning.
Sweet. I know that some local papers in her local constituency, Bedford, have also started sniffing around this story. Now just waiting for one of the national newspapers to pick it up once the result comes back.
