Fanfare I must commend Nadine Dorries for her novelist's eye

Fanfare Not sure how big a deal this is

I must commend Nadine Dorries for her novelist's eye for detail, if not her way with words.

The Guardian – yes, I know, hardly impartial on this, but we are speaking of fact here – reports MP Dorries tweeted that Liz Truss, a candidate for the Conservative Party leadership, was “travelling the country wearing her earrings which cost circa £4.50 from Claire’s Accessories”.

That no one else covering the Truss peregrinations mentioned this remarkable fact could mean one of two things:
1. All the others missed this reach-out-and-grab-you detail. (Perhaps none of them were fashionistas. I mean, political correspondents, what do they know about reasonably-priced jewellery...?)
Or,
2. Only Nadine saw the significance of it.

I once saw Jeremy Corbyn buy Aldi chocolate spread instead of expensive branded spread, but I'll refrain from expressing my opinion, cos we're in the front room.

“Nad” should, if she’s any sense, jack in the political day job and do a Jeffrey Archer.
(Archer’s conviction for perjury and perverting the course of justice and subsequent prison sentence didn’t do his book sales any lasting harm).
Obvious, really.
