Nadine Dorries took aim at Dominic Cummings and blew her own foot off
Like pretty much every Conservative MP who’s opened their mouth today, health minister Nadine Dorries has been keen to play down Dominic Cummings’ explosive criticism of Boris Johnson on Wednesday.
Dorries had this to say on Twitter although possibly she should have read it twice (once, even) before sending it because, well, look.
Wanted: devastating takedown. Got: classic self-own.
And although Dorries sensibly took the precaution of locking her so-called tweet so nobody could reply, it didn’t stop people sharing her missive with their own comment attached.
In a way, aren't we all not as clever as we don't think we are https://t.co/iZ39PKAlpV

The incompetence meant that the U.K. *needed* to lead the world in recovery. Which it isn’t. https://t.co/LWw5vuJycT
