This Nadine Dorries tweet hasn’t aged well – in two months

At its second appearance before the House of Commons, the EU Withdrawal Agreement secured by Theresa May was defeated by 149 votes, a distinct improvement on its last defeat when it lost by the largest ever parliamentary margin, of 230.

41 MPs changed their mind between the first vote, in January, and the one on Tuesday night, including Nadine Dorries, who may just wish she hadn’t tweeted this.


Such a self-own was never going to slip quietly by on Twitter, which is why we have these glorious responses.

If that weren’t embarrassing enough, there was another tweet.

LBC presenter and author, James O’Brien – who invented the “Nadine Dorries Award for weapons grade Brexit ignorance” – had a theory about her vote.

We can’t say he’s wrong.
