“Window-licker” is a derogatory – in fact downright offensive – term for a person with mental disabilities.

It is an insult against people who do not have the ability to defend themselves.

Making such an insult – about Twitter users, in this case – is far from stateswomanlike behaviour, as Nadine Dorries should know.

She doesn’t care. She is an entitled Conservative MP with an extremely safe seat. She thinks she can say what she likes.

It is an attitude that is too close for comfort to that of her fellow Conservative MPs who think they can do what they like – to researchers, office staff, journalists or anyone else unlucky enough to be near them.

What is the answer to people like this?

The less than charming Tory MP Nadine Dorries has made a bid to outdo her ‘handsy’ male colleagues in the outrage stakes, with a tweet degrading people with learning difficulties.

Dorries has shown herself to be either uncaring, or at best ignorant, after she tweeted ‘Window lickin’ Twitter trolls out in force today’.

Unsurprisingly, she was immediately taken to task by disgusted Twitter users, as the term is a well known phrase used to insult or belittle.

She deleted the offensive tweet after just 11 minutes, but rather than apologising, she went on the offensive, actually chiding her detractors for presuming to rebuke her. Notable amongst these were Mencap, who criticised her for posting something so blatantly revolting.
