The MP we all know as “Mad Nad” has struck again.
Nadine Dorries, who has miraculously managed to climb the greasy pole far enough to become a health – health! – minister, has performed another spectacular display of idiocy:

“Only a crystal ball could have predicted the need for a second lockdown”?
The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies called for it on September 21.
Its acronym may be SAGE but that doesn’t mean it uses a crystal ball!
The reaction on the social media has been exactly what she deserved:

It still shocks me, though by now it shouldn't, that Nadine Dorries is a minister – an actual minister – in this government. https://t.co/14P4sSTq5s

2 weeks ago, Nadine Dorries said the whole of Notts didn’t need to go into Tier 3. Looking at the numbers we’d just presented to us by Public Health England it was plain it would. Didn’t need a crystal ball, just the ability and willingness to look and listen. https://t.co/mZ0euZX1eM

Anybody who was even slightly paying attention has seen this coming for weeks.
…so of course Nadine Dorries, one of Westminster's leading idiots, didn't.

I should think that @JeremyFarrar and @IndependentSage @chrischirp @GabrielScally might not take kindly to their hard calculations, training and expertise being consigned to “crystal ball” work by Nadine Dorries.
But now we know how the Government makes decisions. https://t.co/71aGQnACKG

This woman should not be in any post in any form of government. She’s dangerous.

Dorries is not relinquishing the crown of dimmest MP without a fight. Bradley and Jenkyns need to up their respective games.

Yes… but … let's not forget.
Nadine Dorries is literally the most intellectually challenged Tory MP they have. https://t.co/qWKgtXK1Yo
