Westminster scandal': Tory MP Nadine Dorries says Government problems seem to be 'coordinated and strategic' in an attempt to 'de-rail Brexit'

Nadine Dorries says problems in Government are linked to Brexit

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Conservative MP Nadine Dorries has said problems in Government seem to be coordinated and strategic with an aim to de-rail Brexit, potentially including the dossier of sexual harassment allegations.

Several sexual harassment allegations have come out against MPs including a dossier of allegations against Tory MPs. Sir Michael Fallon has now also resigned from his position as defence secretary over his conduct.

Dorries told Julia Hartley-Brewer that "Labour misdemeanours are not getting anything like the same traction in the media" as Conservative misdemeanors.

She believes "Conservative remainers are working with Labour Party remainers to achieve [an end to Brexit]."

The MP said a lot of the things happening in Government seem "to be quite coordinated, quite strategic" and she said "I’ve got my own suspicion that it isn’t even researchers" who released the dossier of allegations.

Dorries added "one can only surmise as to why that is. Why what happened yesterday with the withdrawal bill, the motion [about Brexit impact reports being released] that Labour put forward at the end of the opposition database suddenly being made binding.

"There are a number of things happening in the background and they’re all aiming for one thing and that is to de-rail Brexit."

"Sadly we knew Brexit was going to be tough. I’m not sure people thought it was going to be this tough."
