Just when you thought Louise Mensch had expended her not inconsiderable reserves of hypocrisy, it turns out she has more in the tank. Having abandoned her constituents while she emigrates to America, Mensch has attacked Nadine Dorries for doing the same to appear on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Eschewing her own doomed social media site, Mensch took to Twitter last night to vent against Dorries (reverse chronological order):
Lest we forget, Mensch’s rock manager husband recently let the cat out of the bag as to her real reasons for quitting her marginal Corby seat:
“She thought — and I wasn’t going to argue with her — that she’d get killed in the next election”
As for her Twitter tirade, Scrapbook ventures Louise needn’t invoke her sizeable imagination when it comes to “the scene in the whips’ office” after they got word of Nads’ media commitment.
It would be broadly similar to the scene caused by Mensch lumbering the Conservatives with a costly by-election they are destined to lose.
