The debate kicked off badly for Nadine Dorries today, when Cameron said she was “frustrated”, and ended with her losing the vote by a massive 250 majority (368 – 118).
Only 118 arseholes in Parliament? Surely that can’t be right. Oh well, some strongly worded e-mail of disgust will be winging their way to these people in due course.
Anyway, I won’t parade this as any sort of victory for “common sense”, Dorries’ amendment attacking respected abortion counsellors was stupid and unevidenced but it had some clout and organisational backing.
A good campaign by all but, as Sunny says, there are more battle grounds to be fought against those neo-medievalists. Actually people in medieval times fucked all round the houses (the Cathars in particular being very into anal sex, if you want to google that, be my guest).
Neo-Victorian may have been better. Dorries seems to be as obsessed with other people’s sexual organs and sexual habits as the Victorians were. I wonder if she’s read much Foucault.
