Are ‘sinister forces’ conspiring against Nadine Dorries?

12 min listen

Nadine Dorries has hit out on various platforms saying that ‘sinister forces’ stopped her from receiving her peerage, as promised to her by former prime minister Boris Johnson. This has been met by a strong rebuke from Number 10, but do Boris and Dorries have grounds to feel aggrieved?

Also on the podcast, tomorrow we will learn the Privileges Committee’s findings on whether Boris Johnson knowingly misled the House. What should we expect? 

James Heale speaks to Katy Balls and Paul Goodman, editor of Conservative Home. 

Produced by Cindy Yu and Oscar Edmondson.
