Tory MP Nadine Dorries Admits She Nearly Joined UKIP.

Nadine has just told Chris Ship of ITV News that she almost joined UKIP.

She said that if her whip had not been restored "her options would have been open."

Although Nadine refused to be drawn on the "posh" row again she has tonight confirmed that less than 24 hours after having the whip restored she will be at the heart of the campaign to vote for an EU Referendum in Parliament next week after Speaker Bercow gave the green light this afternoon.
