The MP, so prone to making ill-informed claims that James O’Brien felt the need to create the ‘Nadine Dorries Award for Weapons-grade Brexit Ignorance’, has a long history of gaffes, including –
Claiming the Tories had created twice as many jobs in Hartlepool – or Harlepool, in Dorriesworld – as the population of Hartlepool.
Complaining that Brexit removed the UK’s voice in the European Parliament.

When she thought she had a gotcha for people paying attention to the many damning revelations shared by Dominic Cummings after his expulsion from the heart of government.
Because it would be completely ridiculous to doubt the claims for which he had screenshots, whilst believing he drove to Barnard Castle to test his eyesight. Oh!

At least we know she’ll be even-handed in her new role when she has to decide the future of the BBC. Oh!
It could be worse – she could think ‘left-wing snowflakes’ have removed Christ from Christmas. Oh!
The Health Department’s ‘loss’ truly is the DCMS Department’s – well – loss.
It's appalling, obviously, and conclusive evidence that Johnson holds the Culture department in complete contempt, but Nadine Dorries becoming Secretary of State is straight up hilarious.

The closest Nadine Dorries ever gets to culture is if she's eating a pot of fucking yoghurt.

When you realise that Nadine Dorries has just been appointed Culture Secretary by a man whose favourite film is Vince Vaughan's Dodgeball it all makes sense.

Nadine Dorries is in the cabinet. The next time anyone in this government mentions "meritocracy" remind them they promoted the most intellectually vapid MP of the modern era.

It's difficult to imagine a less talented or qualified cabinet.
