About this deal
In 2009 though, Dorries was highly critical of Cameron's proposal to consider using all-women shortlists, arguing against a move which would create "two classes of MPs".
In February 2013, at the time of the Bill's second reading in the House of Commons, she argued that the bill avoided the issue of consummation and thus contradicted the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, and therefore did not make gay marriage equal to heterosexual marriage. best-selling e-book with 100,000 copies sold in the format by July 2014, although print sales in hardback and paperback were significantly lower with, respectively, 2,735 and 637 sales by then. had led to her refusing to disclose the information to Kathryn Hudson, the parliamentary commissioner for standards.Peter Oborne observed at this point that Dorries had still not declared the amount she was paid for her appearance on I'm a Celebrity. Men knock back the Guinness (28 mentions in The Four Streets, Dorries’ first book), while they dream of “green fields the colour of emeralds, or a raven-haired girl, with eyes that shone like diamonds”, and kick each other’s heads in.
Dorries was one of ten parliamentarians personally named in a Commons Select Committee of Privileges special report on the "co-ordinated campaign of interference in the work of the Privileges Committee", published on 28 June 2023.
During her tenure as Secretary of State, Dorries attempted to push through the privatisation of Channel 4.
In Johnson's cabinet reshuffle in September 2021, he promoted her to Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.In July 2022, Dorries personally granted Grade II listed status to a plaque of Cecil Rhodes in Oxford which she stated was of "special historic interest".
