It would appear that Nadine Dorries MP is none too keen on @Humphreycushion (H returns the compliment) who is disabled, awaiting treatment, because of H’s excessive twittering and objections to her as an MP. Dorries and serial ranters and nutters on twitter have accused @Humphreycushion of being workshy and scrounging off the state. If the State was actually able to deliver medical services instantly, then @Humphreycushion and others would be able to work – but we do not live in a perfect world, let alone a perfect country.
One would have thought a former nurse would have been more sympathetic to people who suffer from health problems. Dorries has blogged about it, rather unpleasantly, here.
Ms Dorries ends her piece with this…. “In the meantime, do you know of anyone else who has Tweeted more than 35,000 times in less than six months? If so, email my office and let me know. Or, better still, if it’s someone you know is on benefits, contact the DWP.”
I have tweeted 61,000 times in two years and I shall continue to tweet – but there again, I work for myself and can do as I please. Some people, despite best efforts – health or local unemployment rates, are not in that fortunate position.
In the meantime… I am assuming Ms Dorries is whiter than white on the expenses front after her *beasting* by The Telegraph last year on the matter of expenses? All good on the IPSA front?
MPs’ expenses: Tory MP Nadine Dorries admits she only spends weekends and holidays in her ‘main home’
Iain Dale (pictured right above), has several jobs – and is a blogger I do enjoy reading, even if I don’t always agree with his views. If I want to read a blog where I agree with absolutely everything the blogger says I will read this one – it is excellent – absolutely spot on with my beliefs!
I do not like twitter or blog bullying – leaves an unpleasant taste! Messrs Clegg, Cameron, Miliband et al shall, of course, continue to provide me with hours of harmless amusement over the drunken years to come. The last laugh, of course, is on them when I start to agree with what they are saying or do – which, dare I say it, in moments of lucidity…. sometimes, I do. Only in the National Interest, you understand…….
