Nadine Dorries has announced she is standing down as an MP at the next general election.

The former culture secretary revealed her news during a rant about Conservatives who ‘drank the Kool-Aid and got rid of Boris Johnson’.

She said she ‘loves her job’, but must ‘remove herself’ from ‘infighting and occasional sheer stupidity’.

The Johnson loyalist has not hidden her views on Rishi Sunak since he became British leader, recently naming him a ‘invisible, submarine’ prime minister.

Last year, she rejected reports she could give up her safe seat to aid a Johnson comeback – and in return for a peerage – as ‘100% nuclear grade tosh’.

Making her announcement on her new TalkTV programme today, Ms Dorries said: ‘Those MPs who drank the Kool-Aid and got rid of Boris Johnson are already asking themselves the question: who next? 

‘And I’m afraid that the lack of cohesion, the infighting and occasionally the sheer stupidity from those who think we could remove a sitting prime minister, who secured a higher percentage of the vote share than Tony Blair did in 1997, just three short years ago…

‘That they could do that and the public would let us get away with it.

‘I’m afraid it’s this behaviour that I now just have to remove myself from.

‘And so, despite it being a job that I’ve loved for every year that I’ve done it, I’m now off. 

‘Oh gosh, I’ve just said it out loud, there’s no going back now.’

TalkTV released a clip of Ms Dorries’ announcement ahead of her next show on Friday.
