Harman slams Tory 'bullies'

Harman slams Tory 'bullies'
Harriet Harman has accused the Conservative leadership of acting like “bullying machos” in their treatment of Nadine Dorries.

Ms Dorries had the Conservative whip removed after appearing on the reality TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’, and is yet to be reinstated to the party.

Speaking today to LBC Radio, Shadow Culture Secretary Ms Harman said she did not agree with Ms Dorries’ decision to appear on the show, but also criticised the “sneering” attitude of some Tories.

“I disapprove of the judgemental sneering approach of many members of Parliament and especially her own side,” Ms Harman told LBC Radio.

“The Tories have taken to Nadine Dorries and I think that actually she is an intelligent woman who has got our own thoughts; who is not to be looked down and condescended by the Tory grandees and for that they regard her as a bit of an upstart.

"To be a woman in the Tory party, where there is hardly any women and to have a working class background in the North, they think she should know her place, and she is not prepared to know her place, so she will make her own judgements on how she will find her way in the future but I do admire the fact she is not cowed by bullying machos in the Tory Party.”
