Nadine Dorries continues to smear Tim Ireland

Nadine Dorries, who engorged thousands of pounds from the taxpayer, is continuing to smear blogger Tim Ireland, this time by comparing him to the mentally ill woman who stabbed the MP Stephen Timms recently. Mr. Ireland’s sin was to be involved in a running feud with Ms. Dorries. As Richard Bartholomew points out:

Tim satirises Dorries quite mercilessly, and Dorries has made it clear that she has found some of his jibes to be offensive. But that’s life if you’re a public figure. Dorries knows damn well that she is not under any kind of personal threat from Tim. Why didn’t she give the newspaper an example of one of his threats, if she had anything? And – more to the point – why hasn’t the police had any contact with Tim? An MP claims that she has been forced off-line by threats, yet the police can’t be bothered to have a word with the supposed culprit? And the MP just accepts that without any bitter complaint about the unfairness of it all? Come off it. She’s lying, and shamelessly. Lying to the voters, and – if she’s sincere in her supposed religious faith – before God.

Given that Tim Ireland has been the victim of a campaign in which his family were threatened by thugs, Ms. Dorries needs to withdraw these allegations quickly (especially as the campaign targeting him used such allegations to justify their behaviour).

    I don’t think Dorries will withdraw these allegations too much has been invested in this feud as you call it; holding an elected representative to account is how I would term Irelands conduct.

    Dorries clearly can’t stand the heat of being an elected representative as her response to Ireland’s fair and reasonable questions/inquiries have proven beyound doubt. The BoS interview is merely a follow up to defaming him as a “Stalker” at the flitwick hustings.

    There is a lot of other issues going on here that I will not comment on for many reasons. The only issue that this (post) raises is Dorries suitability as an elected representative; her conduct re: Ireland is beyound the pale and anyone else would have involved a solicitor.

    Her attitude is a little childish, however with that in mind, I think we all want to know when they’re going to stop all this and just make out.

    It’s getting a bit like the schoolyard. No hairpulling.

    I’m amazed that this is still going on – it seems to have dragged on forever. Frankly at this stage if Tim’s allegations are true he should take Nadine to court very publicly to settle the alleged libel. If Nadine is convinced that Tim is indeed the alleged stalker and a danger to her personally she should insist police arrest him and try him as a danger to her, she should also take out a restraining order (which again would be public and in court and seen from both sides).

    So, Tim, Nadine – make a move. One or both – but this isn’t going to end well if it continues. Tim if you really do think Nadine’s defamed and libelled you and put your family at risk, go (properly and legally) public – you’ll end her career (and rightly so if your right). Nadine, if you think you can put Tim away legally, do it (properly and legally and publicly) if he’s a ‘stalker’ you’ll be doing the public a massive service and you’ll get a parliamentary boost for being brave.

    Tim Yeo MP was once famously stalked on the internet (see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/3936573.stm ). Was this case ever resolved? Do you think there are any lessons to be learnt about MPs’ safety from the earlier case?

    Tim is innocent because if he made threats he’d be in prison because you can’t make threats anymore

    Would someone please tell me why Nadine Dorries MP has not beenmade to (A) applogise to Tim Ireland regarding the slurs she has made against him. 1. she called him a Paedophile. 2. She said he was engaged in criminal activities and 3rd but not last that she claims he has sent emails to her and other MPs this past year ( she used the word “stalking” I heard her words on the Flitwick hustings Video. I am utterly confused as by law she cannot get away with making slanderous statements of such a serious nature.
    I would like to ask Mr Cameron what he intends to do about this MP as this is a very serious matter.
    I would also like to know if Tim Ireland has been given legal advice on this matter as Dorries words were recorded. NO OTHER MP has come forward and said they have received emails from Mr Ireland which Dorries said there was other MPs.
    Dorries was quick to sue McBride over the “smear emails” and I followed this issue closely and it was Dorries who named herself as being smeared. We didn’t know it was Dorries until she named herself.
    This MP has made ugly comments about members of her own party and the opposition. I wait now to hear that Tim Ireland has been in touch with a Solicitor and will sue Dorries.

  7. Margaret — on 5th June, 2010 at 8:41 am  

    Is there any further news on the issue with Nadine Dorries and the slurs she has made against Tim Ireland.
    He by law has every right now to sue her. She simply cannot say in public that he has engaged in criminal activities or that he is a Paedophile. I have a relation who is a Solicitor and I believe Mr Ireland can now sue Dorries for making such serious statements.
    It is amazing that Cameron has not called Dorries in to speak to her on such a serious matter.
    When will you publish the outcome of this matter?

  8. Margaret — on 5th June, 2010 at 8:48 am  

    Why is Nadine Dorries determined to continue with this hate session of Tim Ireland ? Doesn’t she realise she is stepping into very dangerous waters by calling the man a Paedophile and saying he is involved in criminal activity. Dorries would be headlines in all the newspapers now if it was HER being called any names and she would sue Tim Ireland if he said she had been engaged in criminal activity.
    Please enquire why Dorries is being allowed to get away with this behaviour.
