Dorries hits out.

Nadine Dorries has launched another attack on the coalition and also on how party conferences have changed over the years.

The maverick tory says that the Conservative Conference has changed from "a special time for activists to become involved and have their voices heard to a week when lobbying and the political class get to eat, drink and party on corporate accounts."

Dorries also hits out at recent defections from the Conservatives to UKIP by claiming that there was "row upon row of men and women who used to deliver Conservative leaflets and canvass our voters."

Nadine says that the party needs to offer a reason for euro-sceptic members on the right of the party to belong to the Conservatives such as a right to air their views.

She claims that because members feel isolated this is partly why membership of all political parties has plunged over the years.
