Nadine ‘window lickers’ Dorries patient-shames women in car-crash interview

This woman is a health minister: Nadine Dorries once used a derogatory description of people with mental disabilities to describe her critics on Twitter. Now she has appeared on the radio, telling women that they can expect no help from her if they suffer sexism from doctors [Image: The Prole Star.]

Nadine Dorris is a perfect example of the Tory government having to promote people beyond their abilities.

The health minister who once used the description “window lickers” (an insult against people with mental disabilities)…

… appeared on the BBC’s Woman’s Hour where she tried to shame female NHS patients while denying responsibility for any of their problems.

You can hear the interview for yourself:

Those who have already heard the car-crash interview had nothing but derision for Dorries…

…and praise for her interviewer Emma Barnett:

The message is starkly clear: if you are a woman and you are being failed by the Tory-run health service, you will get no help from the Tories who are running it into the ground.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
