Conservative backbencher Nadine Dorries has become the latest Tory MP to lend support to the party’s bid to win the Hampstead and Kilburn seat.
The MP came to West Hampstead to address a group of Conservatives in aid of Cllr Simon Marcus’s campaign to become the constituency MP.
The Mid Bedfordshire MP, who temporarily lost the Tory whip after appearing on reality TV show I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, was asked about the Labour Party leadership contest between the Miliband brothers, who hail from Primrose Hill.
She revealed that David Cameron “could not believe his luck” when younger brother Ed won, adding that the outcome was a “blessing” – and that a Labour Party led by David Miliband would have been a “terrifying” prospect for the Tories.
Ms Dorries also told the Ham&High that she would like to see the Conservatives collaborating with the UK Independence Party (Ukip).
