Now Nadine Backs Boris.

Is Nadine Dorries saying in public what most Tory activists are thinking in private?

That's the question on my lips today.

In an interview with Iain Dale's Total Politics the maverick Tory and Ukip sympathiser says that anyone who thinks David Cameron will win the next election is an "idiot" and that her own fellow MPs would "have to be idiots" not to parachute Boris Johnson in as Party leader.

TBG recently exposed a possible plot to parachute Mr Johnson into the fairly safe Parliamentary seat of Louth and Horncastle currently held by the Father of The House Sir Peter Tapsell.

By the way, Nadine says of Boris:

"He's won two major elections and nobody else in the party matches that."

"He'd take the party back to the highlands again pretty easy!"
