The Tory MP Nadine Dorries isn't everyones cup of tea. She has the unforgivable fault, to many, of being working class, a nurse, and being of the right. This means lefty types target her and attack her for being a woman.
However her relationship with David Cameron has been fraught. The way he crudely ridiculed her in parliament wasn't nice. Worse than that it showed a immature dislike for the working class and especially women of independent mind who don't make moon eyes at him and do as they are told.
I don't agree with Nadine in a lot of things but I fully support her right to speak her mind. As a person who has had a real job, one which dealt with the sick and dying as a nurse she speaks from a background of experience and knowledge that is rare.
To paraphrase the cliché about a woman scorned she's really done damage to Cameron and Osborne by calling them out of touch "arrogant posh boys" who don't understand the lives of ordinary people, or indeed care.
It's a line of attack that will stick. The fact that the leaders of all the main parties are out of touch posh boys all cushioned by unearned wealth who have never done a real job in their lives won't matter.
Nadine has done real damage with this.
The Tory leadership have done a u-turn and that far from being a sexually repressed women Nadine is in fact a credit to the Tory party.
The reason for this is simple: if they attack her it will be seen as posh boys attacking yet another inconvenient woman. This doesn't go down well with the vital female voters who are already being turned off Cameron by his anti female spiel.
Much more seriously Nadine could defect to UKIP.
That would be serious. Not only would it mean that it would give UKIP their first foothold in the House of Commons it may be the impetus of other defections. Cameron's line on the EU, and his sundry broken promises make him out of touch with the majority of his own party and the country at large.
And that's a dangerous position for a leader to be in.
Once one MP defected Tory MPs are going to see there is another way. Many may feel that defecting to a party that is getting more popular and much more intone with the views of the people may be the best option rather than waiting for electoral punishment for following the Cameron line.
Put it this way would you calmly face losing your job following a leader and policies you don't agree with or are you going to take the risk that you'll save you position by joining UKIP?
Nadine has seriously got her own back and could be the wound that never heals for Cameron.
Revenge is sweet when it chimes with the public.
Will Nadine jump?
