An Open Letter to Nadine Dorries

Dear Mrs Dorries

I had the great fortune to attend the hustings in Flitwick last night, and saw what your idea of democracy was.  It was a privilege to see the police called, for what I believe was the heinous crime of free speech.  Whilst you supporters were heard to utter phrases like “Darkie” and “Wog”, we were subjected to you…our democratically elected representative for the last five years, shouting and screaming at your constituents.  I came along last night in an effort to see all sides of the argument.  I heard representatives of the UKIP and English democrats argue their peculiar brand of right wing dogma, with at least a hint of belief and conviction, and whilst every cell in my body is programmed to detest their extreme views, they conducted themselves with at least a bit of dignity.  You however, behaved like a spoiled brat.  Your insinuations about the gentleman broadcasting the public meeting on the public internet were quite strong.  I have no doubt that if what you said on the night was true, then you will be able to back this up with good strong evidence.  However, what I want to know as one of your constituents is why you advised everyone that you had to leave at 8.45 for an important meeting, actually left at 8.30. stood outside smoking for 15 minutes and then started tweeting within half an hour.  What was so important that you felt the need to leave all your constituents questions unanswered?  Why did your daughter point at me when speaking to the policewoman who turned up?   I was there to question you, and the other candidates, and I publically questioned the Labour candidate on their failures.  I am not an activist.  I am definitely NOT a stalker as you intimated on the way out.  I have corresponded with you on a number of matters in the last couple of years, and whilst I do not support you as a candidate I have always communicated with you in a civil and polite manner.  You have blocked me on Twitter for asking civil and polite questions.  You have blocked all comments from your blog.  You have chosen to wait for weeks on end to answer genuine concerns of your constituents, and then responded with standard letters, but somehow managed to find the time to appear on reality TV programmes.  You accuse the other candidates of making the campaign personal, yet you were the one to question the service record of the labour candidate first.  As you did not see fit to stay and answer the questions, perhaps you would have the common decency to at least respond to the following request for clarification;

On your blog of 21st May 2009

You state the following;

I’ve finished going through all my receipts and thought I had better make some things crystal clear:

I do NOT own a home in South Africa.

I do NOT own a home from which I receive a rental income.”

Yet the register of members interests published on 6th May 2009 states this as your entry;

“DORRIES, Nadine (Mid Bedfordshire)
8. Land and Property
House in Gloucestershire, from which rental income is received.
Holiday home in South Africa.”

This is your full entry, and has not been edited in any way, the link to this publicly available document is here;

I would like an explanation.  I have asked for this three times in a letter to you, twice by phone and once on Twitter before you blocked me.

I am sick of you taking me, and my friends and neighbours for granted in your career in a safe seat.  The contempt with which you treated us, your constituents, is matched only by your devious, negligent incompetence.

Here is my phone number REDACTED

My email address is REDACTED

I am being open and honest, perhaps for once you would like to demonstrate the same….?
