We regret to inform you that Nadine Dorries has been at it again – 11 reactions to her behaviour rules for PMs
The Tory obsession with trying to equate Keir Starmer having a beer and a takeaway during a campaign break with the 18 Partygate incidents increases by the day, with one newspaper banging the drum most vigorously.
No prizes for guessing which one.
if the Daily Mail thinks its outrageous that Keir Starmer and Angela Rayner had an entirely legal beer when the country wasn't in lockdown wait til they hear about what Boris Johnson was doing during lockdown #beergate #partygate

As part of operation 'Deflect from Tory scandal by spreading the shit around', the Daily Mail is obsessing over a work event that didn't violate restrictions, and a birthday celebration held when the UK wasn't under lockdown rules.

On Wednesday, the paper rolled out another hot take.
Boris Johnson’s most blindly loyal supporter, Nadine Dorries – who has been doing her level best to amplify the Mail’s campaign, including sharing a highly misleading image – shared her thoughts on the Labour leader.
Following on so closely from her eyebrow raising claim to be a champion of the free press, her description certainly gave people irony déjà vu. It rang a few bells, but not in relation to Keir Starmer.
does she literally not know who the prime minister is
is that what's happening here https://t.co/ZkJbvymBwA

The state we're in, we have a pathological liar pretending to be PM and a Culture Secretary who's lost all sense of reality. https://t.co/YHgel0s7D6

This must be the opening paragraph from her new novel, it can’t possibly be a real statement. pic.twitter.com/aQHVzKaoMI

A woman and elected MP who abandoned her constituency to participate in a trivial TV show on the other side of the planet, where she gobbled down: a baked spider, an ostrich's anus, a lamb's testicle and a camel's toe, has the sheer front to lecture others on their behaviour… https://t.co/2BCJ0bqLdP

If Ms. Dorries is so concerned about lockdown breaking in Durham, she might want to rethink her support for the public face of Barnard Castle Specsavers.
