Nadine Dorries said she will not miss being an MP as she joins the Daily Mail as a weekly columnist.

The Conservative former culture secretary, who represents Mid Bedfordshire and has been an MP since 2005, announced she would not be standing at the next general election earlier this year.

In an interview with the Daily Mail about her life and future plans, Ms Dorries was asked whether she would miss being a member of Parliament.

She said: “No, it can’t come fast enough.

“The problem with some MPs is they don’t know when to let go and they can carry on long after they should.

“Just go. Parliament isn’t a care home.”

Grit

The Boris Johnson loyalist is already the host of a talk show on TalkTV called Friday Night With Nadine – and from Tuesday, she will be joining the Daily Mail as a weekly columnist.

According to the newspaper, readers can expect “humour, candour and plenty of northern grit, as she tackles the talking points of the day” but there will also be revelations about the “real Nadine”.

On the reports she may be offered a seat in the House of Lords, Ms Dorries said: “If it were the case, I’d be incredibly excited.”

The Tory MP has been a vocal critic of Rishi Sunak’s government since he entered Number 10 and is set to release a book on the downfall of former prime minister Mr Johnson.

Not there to speak her mind. There to serve the people. Being a hate figure is not representing all voters once gain power.

She can’t miss what she did little of. Pathetic excuse for a human, with no ability to serve.

Got “served” allegedly by a few “top” Tories as she struggled to climb the very greasy pole of Tory politics. Now will inhabit dark murky pools of rumour and downright lies, not real journalism. Won’t find her lack of brains any disadvantage there.
