Last night, why did Nadine Dorries spread a nonsense story from 2008 by an Anne-Marie Waters supporter, who considers Tommy Robinson to be a "truth teller" (before deleting)...

It is worth noting it was about Muslims (1/?)
ICYMI: When Sadiq Khan talked about hate crime, Nadine Dorries had the audacity to ask him about grooming gangs. Now, what makes Sadiq Khan have any responsibility for grooming gangs?

Playing to far right tropes about Muslims is #Islamophobia (2/?)

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries was disappointed that Boris' de-humanising comments about Muslim women who wear the burqa being "bank robbers" and "letterboxes" , "didn't go further"
Yet as an MP who voted against same-sex marriage and was vociferous in her views (as recently as October 2017), Nadine Dorries tried to weaponise gay rights as a means of attacking Muslims

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries believes that Muslim women choose clothing to "hide...her bruises" - the accusation of domestic violence & linking to a burqa, is astonishing.

Even Conservative MP Alastair Burt distanced himself from her comments (6/?)

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries plays to another false far-right stereotype, linking FGM to Muslim women

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries MP said that a Muslim woman, Yasmin Alibhai Brown, should ‘appreciate’ everything Britain had given her. Yasmin wrote an article explaining "why that's racist". (8/?)

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries believes that "vote rigging / organisation in *Muslim communities* by named ringleaders is commonplace" (9/?)

ICYMI: Nadine Dorries believes Ofsted is clamping down on "illegal Muslim schools". Is it really only illegal Muslim schools? Or is just because "Muslims" are a problem...whilst other illegal faith schools (and others) aren't really an issue?

So does Nadine Dorries have a problem with Muslims? The above should help. ENDS

Given the facts released today by the Judge on the child fostering case that formed the basis of 4 front pages at The Times, there is little doubt that Andrew Norfolk should resign and The Times should issue an unequivocal apology.
This is worse than the other 50+ corrections I have been able to elicit, for inaccuracy.

This "disgracefully dishonest" reporting cannot be seen as a mere error.

There is little doubt that Norfolk appears to have intentionally withheld facts and twisted a story, to elicit 4 front pages.
