Devastating news that former Culture Minister Nadine Dorries has deleted her Twitter account.
The Conservative MP has been a reliable source of unintentional humor and is rumored to be heading to the House of Lords in a turn quite worthy of the times we live in.
I see that Nadine Doris has deleted her Twitter account. In the years to come, we will look back in utter amazement at her time as a senior politician. How was she chosen?

We cannot rule out that Nadine Doris deleted her account by mistake.

Not to spoil the show, but it’s possible that Nadine Dorries deleted her Twitter account to prevent the House of Lords Appointments Committee from scrutinizing the rambling bile she regularly posted.

And what better way to celebrate the end @NadineDorries than with these 23 most memorable palms and mistakes. Not all of them were on her Twitter, but they were all pinned on Twitter, and, well, that’s quite a roll call.
