Nadine Dorries blasts Jeremy Hunt, saying if we were under his leadership it would have “been a disaster.” 

Nadine Dorries, the culture secretary, has slammed the former Health Secretary and remainer Jeremy Hunt after he went after Boris Johnson as he makes his thirst to become the next leader of the Conservative party publicly known.

Nadine Dorries blasts Jeremy Hunt, saying if we were under his leadership it would have “been a disaster.” 

On Twitter, Mr Hunt wrote: “The Conservative Party must now decide if it wishes to change its leader. Because of the situation in Ukraine this was not a debate I wanted to have now but under our rules we must do that.”

“Having been trusted with power, Conservative MPs know in our hearts we are not giving the British people the leadership they deserve. We are not offering the integrity, competence and vision necessary to unleash the enormous potential of our country.”

“And because we are no longer trusted by the electorate, who know this too, we are set to lose the next general election.”

Tory MP Jeremy Hunt state he’ll be voting for change.

“Anyone who believes our country is stronger, fairer & more prosperous when led by Conservatives should reflect that the consequence of not changing will be to hand the country to others who do not share those values. Today’s decision is change or lose. I will be voting for change”

In response to this, Nadine Dorries fired back at Mr Hunt’s comments, saying if we had been under his leadership during COVID it would have “been a disaster.”

Mrs Dorries wrote: “On afternoon of 23rd July 2020 when I was health minister you telephoned me to tell me that we had to handle the pandemic following the example set by the East/China. That people testing + should be removed from their homes and placed into isolation hotels for two weeks.”

“You said yr wife’s family had experience of this during SARS. I said that British people would never tolerate being removed from their homes and loved ones at which point you demanded I show you the evidence for that. Your handling of the pandemic would have been a disaster.”

Nadine Dorries Jeremy Hunt Vote of confidence Boris Johnson change

“Your pandemic preparation during six years as health secretary was found wanting and inadequate.Your duplicity right now in destabilising the party and country to serve your own personal ambition, more so.”

“You told others that PM and Gov would swiftly collapse on back of Brexit and you would swoop in. You told me as much in Victoria St after GE. If you had been leader you’d have handed the keys of No10 to Corbyn. You’ve been wrong about almost everything, you are wrong again now”
