Nadine Dorries Has Whip Withdrawn Over Her Decision To Appear In I’m A Celebrity


 Longtime readers may remember that two years ago, we at Disability Voices were outraged by Nadine Dorries MP’s disablist comments on Twitter.

So much so that I started a Facebook group at the time calling for her to be removed as an MP.

Now, it has been revealed that Ms Dorries plans to be the first serving MP to participate in the reality TV programme I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

Ms Dorries has been widely criticised for this, and it has just been announced that as a result of the decision, she has been suspended from the Parliamentary Conservative Party.

I feel like the little campaign I started two years ago is one step closer to being successful.
