Oh dear, that headline doesn’t quite read right. Old dog and single mum are excuses she has made for being the center of an embarrassing expenses probe, and not descriptive in any way. To liken herself to Emily Davison is outragious. I wonder what scam Emily was planning as she threw herself under the horse?
Good story though, have a look at it here.
Nadine Dorries accused the MPs’ expenses watchdog of sexism today as she likened her plight to the persecution of the suffragettes. The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) announced last week that it was investigating the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire over alleged irregularities in her travel and accommodation expenses.
In a blog post today, Ms Dorries, hinted that the investigation was part of a politically motivated smear campaign following her recent appearance on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
She also claimed that her complex living arrangements were a result of her being a “single mum and lone carer of a family and a dog”, and cited the ordeal of Emily Davison, the suffragette who threw herself in front of the King’s horse during the 1913 Derby.
