Nadine Dorries appeared to poke fun at Tory MPs opposing Boris Johnson by posting a photo of a pork pie. 

The Culture Secretary, 64, took to social media yesterday to share the photo, along with the caption: ‘Dinner on long journey home after a very cold day in the NE. Pork pies are only really any good for one thing.’

The tweet appeared to be a thinly-veiled swipe at the so-called ‘Pork Pie Plotters’, a group of around 20 MPs who met in the office of Alicia Kearns, Tory MP for Melton Mowbray – home of the pork pie – to hatch a plan to remove Boris Johnson, as they believe he is hurting their chances of re-election.

Though the plot appears to have died down, sources suggest the Culture Secretary’s tweet could enflame tensions again. 

Global Tech News Daily

One told the Spectator: ‘She’s alienating wavering colleagues and her interventions are actually making a confidence vote more likely. This sort of approach will soon lead to open warfare in the party.’ 

Ms Dorries, a staunch ally and defender of the PM, previously took a swipe at her old boss David Cameron on Twitter by comparing him to a ticket tout after images of him at an outdoor event appeared online.

In her tweet, Ms Dorries captioned an image of Mr Cameron in a baseball cap and lumberjack shirt, writing: ‘Whether it’s a major music festival, sporting event or concert, it’s important that people pay a fair price to see the events they love. 

‘Please remain vigilant when considering to buy from ticket touts. Guidance is available if you are unsure.’ 

Ms Dorries and Mr Cameron have famously clashed in the past, with the former PM suspending the Tory whip when she went on I’m A Celebrity in November 2012, taking her away from her Parliamentary duties.

Neither the Conservative Chief Whip or the Chairman of the Mid Bedfordshire Conservative Association had been made aware of her absence from Parliament before filming the show.

The whip was later returned to her in May 2013. 

For her part, Ms Dorries previously branded Mr Cameron and George Osborne ‘arrogant posh boys’ who ‘don’t know the price of milk’ during an interview with Politics Live.

Yesterday’s pork pie tweet is the latest example of the Culture Secretary supporting Mr Johnson. 

She wrote in the Mail on Sunday to condemn the ‘attention-seeking behaviour’ of rebel Tory MPs who have been trying to muster the 54 letters of no-confidence needed to trigger a Commons vote on removing the Prime Minister from office.

Ms Dorries derided the group as  ‘small minority’ devoted to ‘chasing airtime and column inches because they are determined to remove our most successful PM since Margaret Thatcher from office’. 

She is also reported to have sent her special adviser to crash the Carlton Club meeting of the so-called ‘pork pie’ plotters.

She wrote: ‘When historians look back, the UK’s vaccine rollout will be seen as one of the most successful peacetime operations in history – thanks to Boris.

‘He also took the decision to hold out against another lockdown this winter in the face of intense pressure and doom-laden predictions from Labour. How many businesses were saved as a consequence? How many millions of people were enabled to have Christmas with their families?

‘Of course there have been mistakes. The last two years have been hell for everyone, and for those working 18 hours every single day after day for weeks on end in the Downing Street war rooms, lines clearly became blurred.’ 

 

Meet the Pork Pie Plotters

Dehenna Davison  

The former reality TV star, 28, – who appeared on Bride and Prejudice with her 63-year-old husband – was considered a friend by the PM’s wife, but is said to be miffed with Boris Johnson after two female Red Wall MPs were promoted ahead of her.

While Ms Davison has not spoken publicly about the plot, she is reported to be one of around 20 MPs who met in the office of Alicia Kearns, Tory MP for Melton Mowbray – home of the pork pie – to hatch a plan to remove the embattled PM, as they believe he is hurting their chances of re-election.

Downing Street is said to be particularly annoyed by Ms Davison’s decision to join the mutinous scheme, which came despite her close friendship with Mrs Johnson.

The pair previously shared selfies with on the campaign trail as they bonded over their love of dogs. They even branded themselves the ‘Tory Girl Squad’.

The poster girl of the 2019 intake, Ms Davison ousted Labour Remainer Helen Goodman and won with a majority of 7,962 – the first time the Bishop Auckland seat voted Conservative since it was created in 1885.

A large part of the victory was down to the high profile support of Mrs Johnson, who afterwards tweeted her congratulations, saying she was thrilled to hear her friend had become the first Conservative MP for Bishop Auckland. ‘She will be fantastic,’ she wrote.

Ms Davison praised her friendship with Mrs Johnson, telling of how she was ‘incredible and offered loads of support and advice’ when she became one of the youngest MPs in the Commons after being elected aged just 26.

The pair – who both own rescue dogs – bonded over their love for animals.

A photo posted on social media by Ms Davison in 2019 saw the pals campaigning with Mrs Johnson’s Jack Russell cross Dilyn and Ms Davison’s terrier cross Carter.

It was then that Ms Davison posted the snap to her followers with the caption #ToryGirlSquad.

After the election, their pets even enjoyed a doggy playdate at the home Mrs Johnson now shares with the PM and their son Wilfred and newborn daughter Romy.

Davison joked about the meet, saying it ‘wasn’t pretty’ but no damage was done to the flat’s interior furnishings.

Born in Sheffield, Ms Davison’s father Dominic was attacked and died from a single blow to the head when she was 13.

Following her election victory, she recalled how she sat in a hospital waiting room as doctors battled for 45 minutes to save her father’s life.

‘I can still picture it. I can tell you what the colour the walls were and everything,’ she said. ‘They [the doctors] stopped and I went to see my dad’s body, which is not something you expect to do at such a young age.’ 

The Tory, who studied politics at Hull University and spent a year as an aide to Jacob Rees-Mogg, previously said politics was about helping people ‘get their benefits claim through, getting a pothole filled’.

The former computer game shop worker admitted the ‘poster girl thing’ was probably due to her tragic backstory and her ‘slightly unusual demographics’. But she added: ‘I just want to get stuff done.’

Last year Davison also revealed that she’s currently divorcing Hull Tory councillor John Fareham, the husband 35 years her senior with whom she appeared on Channel 4 show Bride and Prejudice.  

Alicia Kearns

Rutland MP grabbing a pork pie in the market town of Melton Mo

Alicia Kearns, who was an Amnesty International activist during her teenage years, was elected as MP for Rutland and Melton in 2019.

The alleged involvement of Miss Kearns led to the coup attempt being dubbed the ‘Pork Pie Plot’ – because she is MP for Melton Mowbray, the pork pie capital of the world.

The 34-year-old is a former press officer, working for the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice and the Foreign Office.

A mother of two, she is now a member of the Commons foreign affairs select committee. She has spoken out against some of the government’s lockdown restrictions, including Covid passports. 

The Tory MP, who replaced stalwart Alan Duncan,  has had her second child since being elected and has campaigned for mothers not to be alone in labour in hospitals, after some trusts banned partners.

She also weighed in on the debate over breastfeeding in the Commons chamber amid an outcry over Labour’s Stella Creasy being censured for carrying her son Pip, then aged three months.  

Rutland and Melton MP Ms Kearns, 34, said she has always been able to leave the chamber to feed her daughter and does not need to have that ‘live-streamed to the world’ from the Commons.

Ms Kearns, who announced the birth of her second child in January 2021, said: ‘Babies have no place in the chamber. I’ve asked to leave debates to feed my child a few times – I have never been turned down.

‘This is a debate about childcare that is wrongly being presented as one of rights and representation.’ 

Chris Loder

Another MP said to be involved in the plot is Chris Loder, MP for West Dorset since 2019, replacing Oliver Letwin.  

Mr Loder said he had received 400 emails over recent days with the ‘vast, vast majority’ critical of the PM.

He said on Facebook: ‘With revelations concerning Downing Street parties over the last two years at its height, I’d like you to know that I and most of my colleagues feel deeply embarrassed and humiliated by such revelation’.

The 40-year-old was previously head of new trains for South Western Railway.

He started work as a train guard aged 18 at South West Trains, the firm which previously held the franchise.

Mr Loder is an opponent of ‘woke’ politics and he lists his hobbies as bell ringing in Dorset churches and playing his organ.

He attended the local state comprehensive and never went to university. 

His Christian faith has seen him speak out on a number of scandals gripping the Church of England in recent years.

This included when the Rt Rev Dr Joanna Penberthy, the Bishop of St Davids, told her congregation ‘never, never, never trust a Tory’. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was forced to apologise.

Loder, a practicing Anglican in the Church of England, wrote to Dr Penberthy telling her to resign over the ‘disgracefully divisive’ comments, which proved she ‘isn’t fit to be a bishop’.

He also claimed his political affiliation had led members of the clergy to ‘turn their backs when sharing the peace of Christ at the eucharist’ and that ‘there are some churches and some clergy who don’t welcome me, even in my home constituency… because I am Conservative.’ 

Gary Sambrook

Gary Sambrook was elected MP for Birmingham Northfield in the 2019 election – but is believed to be deeply unhappy with the party leader

Gary Sambrook was elected MP for Birmingham Northfield in the 2019 election – but is believed to be deeply unhappy with the party leader.

He said: ‘The prime minister has admitted attending one of the gatherings but disputed its status as a party, and has apologised. We all will come to our own conclusions.’ 

Sambrook defeated sitting Labour MP Richard Burden, who had represented the seat since 1992.

The 32-year-old has spoken out in favour of trans rights, and wants the government to improve legal recognition for trans people.

The former Birmingham councillor is openly gay and also a proud freemason, saying it was easier to come out than admit the latter.

He spoke out after former Tory MP Sarah Wollaston asked on Twitter why ‘anyone would bother with all that claptrap if not for the chance to weasel an unfair advantage’.

But Sambrook said Freemasons did a great job for charities and its members were ordinary people – despite the ‘funny handshakes’.

‘For a long time Freemasonry has been on the receiving end of whispering, stigma and discrimination,’ he said.

‘I have never made a secret of the fact that I am a Mason, and proudly tell anyone who asks.

‘It was probably easier to come out as gay than as a Freemason. The generalisation is often of a secret society, meeting in anonymous buildings with accusations of controlling Governments and faking the moon landings.’ 

The minister

Therese Coffey

Cabinet minister Therese Coffey, 50, is also accused of speaking out against Boris Johnson’s leadership.

Before she entered politics, she was finance director for Mars Drinks UK and property finance director for the BBC.

She was elected as MP for Suffolk Coastal, taking over from John Gummer, in 2010. She voted against the legalisation of same-sex marriage, saying she believed marriage was about family.

Boris Johnson appointed her as Work and Pensions Secretary in 2019 after the resignation of Amber Rudd, a position she retains.

Last month she strenuously denied breaking coronavirus restrictions by hosting karaoke parties at her Cabinet office in lockdown.

Red Wall assassins 

Christian Wakeford

Bury South MP Christian Wakeford is joining Labour

Bury South MP Christian Wakeford is joining Labour

Bury South MP Christian Wakeford today defected from the Conservatives to Labour, telling Boris Johnson that ‘you and the Conservative Party as a whole have shown themselves incapable of offering the leadership and government this country deserves’.

He is said to have been quitting for Labour since the Autumn but allegations about the Downing St parties were the final straw.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer welcomed MP Christian Wakeford’s defection from the Tories, saying: ‘The policies of the Conservative government are doing nothing to help the people of Bury South and indeed are only making the struggles they face on a daily basis worse.’

He was not at the ‘pork pie’ meeting but has said he has no confidence in the Prime Minister. Some exoerts are claiming that his letter still may count, despite his defection.

Before he won his Bury South seat in 2019 he was an insurance broker.

It was reported last year that he approached Owen Paterson and called him a ‘c***’ after the government instructed MPs to vote to change parliamentary sleaze rules.  

He used the expletive while full of a mixture of ‘anger’ after Mr Paterson broke lobbying rules, and codeine he received for a broken ankle.

The MP for Bury South, one of a number elected to former Labour strongholds in 2019, said he was angry at MPs being ‘marched up the hill’ to try to block Mr Paterson’s suspension.  Mr Wakeford confirmed the claim he used the C-word was true, telling Times Radio: ‘It’s been a mixture of quite a lot of anger and codeine. I clearly have a broken ankle at the moment. It’s not the best mix’.

Mark Logan

Bolton's Tory MP Mark Logan rebelled over the operation to save Owen Paterson

Bolton’s Tory MP Mark Logan rebelled over the operation to save Owen Paterson

Bolton’s Tory MP Mark Logan, who has a majority of just 378, says  he has been left ‘infuriated’ by the No 10 parties.

He said: ‘Like many of you who’ve taken the time to contact me this week. In government the prime minister sets the culture and example for the rest of the country.’ 

He began rebelling against Boris Johnson in November, choosing to abstain the controversial vote over whether to review the system for upholding standards. 

It was in relation to North Shropshire MP Owen Paterson who was found to have repeatedly breached paid lobbying rules. 

The decision by Boris Johnson to try to save Paterson’s skin and prevent him being suspended has been seen by many as the turning point of his premiership.

He said at the time: ‘I believe in the end that given the findings of the independent commission, I would not be able to vote for a motion that would overrule the findings that were laid out.

‘This is not only from the perspective of my own personal assessment of the findings, but also in relation to how just or unjust this would feel to people in Bolton’. 

Lee Anderson

Lee Anderson refused to watch Gareth Southgate’s team in the Euros because they took the knee

Elected in Ashfield with a majority of 5,733 – it was just the second time the Nottinghamshire constituency has ever had a Tory MP. 

He said of the partygate scandal: ‘Personally, I would not back anyone who has knowingly done wrong.’ 

Son of a coal miner, educated at the local state and then a miner for 12 years himself he was a member of Arthur Scargill’s National Union of Mineworkers and went on strike in 1984. 

Later worked in homeless hostels before becoming office manager for the Labour MP Gloria De Piero. Frustrated with Labour’s Brexit stance, he quit in 2018 and joined the Tories.

Last year he made headlines having vowed to boycott England’s Euro 2020 games because of his opposition to players taking the knee.  

He lashed out at the players taking the knee because it was associated with the Black Lives Matter political movement, which is largely far-left.

In a video on Facebook, Mr Anderson – wearing a T-shirt with the Three Lions emblazoned on it – said it’s ‘their choice to take the knee and it’s my choice not to watch the matches’ but added he had received abuse about his position.

Before the tournament began, Mr Anderson said the FA had made a ‘big mistake’ in supporting taking the knee.

He told the Times that Black Lives Matter was a ‘Marxist organisation’, adding: ‘The FA, Premier League and footballers now run the risk of becoming like the Labour Party and that is having nothing in common with their traditional supporters.

‘All forms of racism are vile and should be stamped out, but this is not the way.

‘For the first time in my life I will not be watching my beloved England team while they are supporting a political movement whose core principles aim is to undermine our way of life.’

Antony Higginbotham

 The 32-year-old won Burnley with a majority of 1,352 – the first Tory MP in the town since 1910.

Antony Higginbotham

The 32-year-old won Burnley with a majority of 1,352 – the first Tory MP in the town since 1910. 

But with his seat under threat he said on Facebook: ‘I am as angry and disappointed as you are. 

‘This whole saga has damaged trust in politics; raised serious questions about those who were responsible for forming up the restrictions I had to vote on and we all had to live under; and made us all think about the difficult periods we’ve endured over the last two years and the sacrifices made.’ 

He is single and openly gay. His grandmother was a nurse and his mother was a trade union representative, while his father held two jobs to try to make ends meet. Single and openly gay.

Educated at the local state school and the first of his family to go to university, studying politics at Hull.

Before entering politics he worked in the NHS and then joined NatWest to help customers prepare for life after the EU. 

He claims his political outlook was inspired by his time in Lancashire’s Army Cadet Force.
