    doesn't seem to be a person you should take seriously.

    She wanted to trick her constituents into thinking she spends time in her constituency:

    "In a series of letters to the commissioner, which are included in the report, Ms Dorries explains why she wanted to give the impression that she lived at a house she was renting in her constituency.

    She says: "Since I first rented in the constituency, I made a song and dance about being at the property. I have mentioned it on my blog a number of times.


    "This was done to comfort my Association. The previous MP only visited the constituency occasionally-sometimes only as often as once every six weeks - and they were keen that I reversed that impression."

    So she rented a house at the taxpayer's expense. But didn't live there.


    "The £18,000 rent on the constituency house was paid using her second home allowance - she said she had considered buying a house with the allowance but it "just didn't feel right".

    While attending Parliament in London, she mainly lived at her family home in the Cotswolds, and until December 2006 claimed for overnight stays in a Westminster flat.

    After that, she occasionally stayed overnight in a hotel or at the Carlton Club, a central London gentleman's club with traditional links to the Conservative Party, the report reveals."


    and admits it was just a trick

    "When she was interviewed by a Sunday Telegraph reporter last year she said she transported "boxes of books and ornaments and a couple of pictures to make the place look lived in".

    "The Sunday Telegraph journalist saw through this and commented on the sparsity and dustiness of the house and the fact that the post hadn't been picked up from the mat for two weeks.

    "I then described it as my 'post divorce bolt hole' even though I wasn't yet divorced in order to give the impression to my constituents that I did in fact live there and to convince the journalist that I did.""

    Can you believe a word she says?

    You don't have to be dishonest to be a politician, but it helps.

    We need more engineers, mathematicians and scientists, academics as MPs.

    A person who is honest and not stupid would be a good start.

    Or none.

    Brextremists can be very reluctant to admit which of the possible options they thought they were voting for, and which they would like to get.
