    Funny, I thought that the British taxpayers were paying them to represent their constituents and help run the country not show off in front of TV cameras in Australia?

    Our MPs need to learn that they are servants of the people and not celebrities, but it looks like Nadine Dorries career on 'I'm a Celebrity' might be being brought to a swift end courtesy of an irate Chief Whip.

    Mind you, maybe the whole country would run better if they were all shipped off to eat insects and swing over crocodile infested swamps?

      Does that mean that anyone can take a month offf on full pay?  If so, put me down for it

        Couldn't have said it better myself, CM.

        Nadine Dorries seems to love being in the limelight.

          Quite amusing to imagine Cameron, Clegg, Milliband et al crawling through tunnels full of spiders and cockroaches, splashing through mud pools full of worms to grab enough stars for dinner and how about Balls eating balls for a change instead of talking balls?

        Not only on full pay, but also a £40,000 payout from I'm a Celebrity.  Most employment contracts in the these days prohibit employees from earning elsewhere or running a business on the side, so why should Ms Dorries be able to swan off to earn a small fortune in a couple of weeks?

    She appears to believe that "getting herself out there" amongst those younger people who have no interest in politicians (I wonder why?) will revive interest in politics among the younger generation (they're really worried about voter decline, they have been for years)

    I can't help but think this is some Conservative PR stunt, given that she has the opportunity to saunter back to the party with her tail between her legs later on.

    Politicians of all flavours are so arrogant, and ITV a bit daft, do they honestly believe that younger people who avoid politics and politicians, will *suddenly* feel a bit turned on by Dorres, if anything, they'll ditch I'm a celebrity. IMHO.
