 Nadine Dorries

She makes Priti Patel and co seem semi-competent.

`Nadine Dorries, the secretary of state for digital, culture, media and sport, stunned a rugby league audience by confusing the 13-player game with the rival code.

Speaking in St Helens at the launch of a report into the social impact of the upcoming Rugby League World Cup, Dorries opened her address with a reference to Jonny Wilkinson’s match-winning drop goal for England in union’s 2003 Rugby World Cup.

“I’ve always quite liked the idea of rugby league,” she said. “My long-standing memory is that 2003 drop goal. I’ll let you into a secret. I think we were drinking bloody marys at the time. It was 11 o’clock in the morning but wow what a moment that was.” `

Did she get the job simply because she`d appeared in `I`m a Celebrity...`?

Vile person. Comes across as incredibly ill-informed, which is worrying given her role in the government.

To be honest, even though I don`t like her, that`s not the worst thing to mix up ever. Both Rugby Union and Rugby League are a load of nonsense

In that case I don`t think you`d make a good secretary of state for sport either. I always find RL pretty entertaining whilst RU can sometimes get bogged down in scrums and forward play.

Off to Magic Weekend next Sunday in Newcastle. One of the highlights of the year.

Politicians are just human and can get things mixed up like anyone else.

Witness John Swinney’s hilarious shambles of a radio interview this week - “the next GE will be a de facto Indy ref decided by number of seats …err votes …err misheard the question…”

Dorries was reading a prepared speech not responding to questions. Whoever wrote the speech obviously didn`t know the subject but neither did she. It`s nothing new for her though. She didn`t know how Channel 4 was financed either.

Dorries didn`t make a mistake though. She just had literally no idea what she was talking about.

Maggie Thatcher must have been wrong as well then ?

Dorries has resigned. Johnson`s going to give her a peerage apparently.
