This is all starting to get a bit soap opera, and more than a little uncomfortable, but here are links to the latest on the fall out for Nadine Dorries MP and Esther Rantzen from television presenter Stephen Rhodes declaration of his intention to stand as an independent in Luton South.
The Telegraph has followed up their original article by digging up comments about Rantzen made by Dorries after they “clashed” while both appearing on the BBC’s Question Time programme in December 2008; “Tory MP Nadine Dorries’s scorn for Esther Rantzen: ‘a bully who thinks she’s a star'”.
The Daily Mail has joined in with “Tory MP Nadine Dorries ‘in plot with BBC DJ to stop Esther Rantzen being elected’“.
And this is how the local press is reporting the Telegraph’s story; “Radio presenter and Tory MP accused of ‘anti-Esther plot’“.
