Normally Politicians Wait Until After They Have Left Parliament To Go On A Reality TV Show
We have seen Pauline Hanson twirl on Dancing With The Stars, Anna Bligh on Celebrity Masterchef, and Prime Minister Julia Gillard make a guest appearance on Junior Masterchef, but a Tory UK politician has decided to pack her bags, dump her constituent responsibilities and go on popular UK reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Nadine Dorries, the Member for Mid Bedfordshire says the rationale for her going on the show to reach the 16 million viewers and that is where politicians should be going to get their opinions known. Has she actually watched the program it is not a reality TV version of Q&A, and has challenges that are related to eating and doing weird and slightly humiliating acts to take them out of their comfort zones.
Also has she seen the editing of these shows it is not going to be a great platform for her to spout policy issues.
Critics of hers suggest that it is the $60,000 payment which lured her onto the show.
Thankfully the Conservative Party have seen sense and have suspended her. I will be interesting to know if her colleagues will be voting her off or wanting to keep her in the “jungle”. The show is filmed in Far North NSW and usually screens on UKTV here.
