Nadine Dorries lashes out at Camilla Long


"Camilla Long, who was absolutely lovely asked the (many) questions.. Actually, she was so lovely, I found myself thinking that I would be very proud if she were one of my girls" - Nadine Dorries

Today (well, very late last night, if we're to be accurate):

"It appears that Camilla Long, Sunday Times journalist, must have a few bats in her own tiny little belfry. Probably there to keep her cats company." - Nadine Dorries

If you read the relevant piece by Camilla Long (it appears in full as a scan below, from today's Sunday Times), you will note that Dorries' accusation that this journalist lied about one single aspect does very little to excuse what it reveals, even if there is any truth to her accusation (which I doubt, given her history):

Also, if you take a look at the closing paragraph, you will see that Dorries warned Long that this is exactly what she would do if she did not write a positive piece:

Classic Dorries. I pointed out that she was exactly like this almost exactly one year ago.

For more background on what she proposes we teach young girls about sex, see this round-up of reactions.

As usual, Dorries pretends that any negative reaction comes from "Trots and the socialist elite", but she has been described as a "sexist dinosaur" in today's Mail.

Nice post. The Sunday Times piece was poor, in my opinion, despite offering a window into the workings (or not) of Dorries' mind. This issue ought to have been tackled in the media by experts in the subject, and I think Long makes a lot of assertions about sex ed that she doesn't back up ('silly stuff', etc).
