Now, her insistence that the multinational technology corporation Microsoft stop using algorithms has really blown people’s minds.
According to Politico, the culture secretary “arrived at a meeting with software giant Microsoft and immediately asked when they were going to get rid of algorithms”, adding, “she also raised the same issue in a separate stakeholder meeting”.
While she’s right to look at the problematic ways social media companies use algorithms, getting rid of them outright is not what campaigners and critics are asking for.
SNP shadow culture secretary John Nicolson said: “When you see her before the select committee [of MPs], she's rarely able to answer a question on her own, she has to turn to the civil servants or the minister or whoever she's with.
“She's just not briefed, doesn't bother to brief herself, and doesn't seem to have much background knowledge on any of the subjects in her portfolio.”
Nicolson is not alone in his opinion, as many took this latest example to mock Dorries for her ineptitude.
One person mocked: “Nadine Dorries, stumbling into Dolmio and demanding to parlay with the Dolmio man: 'When are you going to stop making the pasta sauce like a mama used to make'".
