Nadine Dorries criticises MPs who 'ignore their constituents' in resurfaced clip
A clip of Nadine Dorries criticising MPs who don't listen to their constituents has resurfaced as the MP clings onto her seat despite saying she would resign.
In 2014, the MP made a speech in the commons claiming MPs should respect the concerns of their local constituents rather than get involved in party political issues.
She said: "Where MPs do fall down is where they ignore their constituents.”
The Mid Bedfordshire MP also told her parliamentary colleagues that her constituents know she is not a “party political MP” and when she’s in her constituency, she “represents everybody, regardless of who they vote for”.
She said: “They also know that I will go the extra mile. I don’t do surgeries once a month, I do them, most times, every week.
“They know I don’t get involved in grubby games or political games in parliament. They know I represent them.
