Threats against Nadine Dorries

Filed under: Uncategorized — madaxeman @ 11:56 am

In her latest blog post here, Nadine Dorries complains of receiving death threats. I don’t believe her – but we’ll come to that in a moment.

First though, let’s assume for a moment that she is telling the truth, and some arsehole actually is threatening her… Whoever you are, you’re a tosser – and that’s coming from someone who definitely isn’t in the Dorries camp. I’m all for people opposing her – in fact I’m happy to encourage it, because we need to see a lot more of it, but there’s no place for physical attacks, threatened or otherwise.

She’s a muppet, and she can be easily defeatded by simple debate.

But, as I say, I don’t believe her.

The reason I don’t believe her is that I know that the many allegations of stalking she has made against Tim Ireland are false. I know that not just from talking to Tim himself, but also through talking to the police themselves. If she can lie once, she can lie again – and indeed in the very article she links to she talks about a man having to accept a police caution. The man question is undoubtedly Tim Ireland, and he neither accepted, nor was offered, a police caution.

For a while I was prepared to think that maybe she got confused by his having an interview under caution, but no – she’s an MP and she knows better.

Oh, and I find it very unlikely that the police would contact her to ask if they should prosecute.

First of all, if someone is making a threat to kill, the police have a duty to act if they can substantiate the charge.

Secondly, the decision to actually prosecute is taken by the CPS, and not the police.

Oh, and finally, if the dreaming of her being killed in a car bomb message (as portrayed in the article in the mail) is true, then it’s a crying shame that the police haven’t brought a prosecution under section 127 1a of the Communications Act 2003. It would be nice if we could see it deployed against it’s intended targets rather than people joking about airports…
