Dorries is here to’shake things up,’ so the BBC is going to feel the heat.

Nadine Dorries has launched a new charge during her Commons questioning, putting the BBC in a major crisis.

Nadine Dorries, the Culture Secretary, appeared before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee for the first time since being appointed after the September cabinet reshuffle.

Ms Dorries’ performance in front of the committee drew praise from Tim Stanley, who noted that she is here to “shake things up.”

‘All bark and bite, Nadine Dorries gives the Left as good a verbal thrashing as she gets,’ wrote Mr Stanley in a piece for The Telegraph.

“Without the gift of clairvoyance, the future of the BBC is unknown,” Mr Stanley wrote.

“It’s a good idea to come to no conclusions just yet so you don’t get caught off guard.”

“However, the committee shouldn’t be naive if it appears perplexed because Ms Dorries isn’t here to maintain the status quo.”

“She’s here to ruffle a few feathers.

“The policy is to appoint Ms Dorries.”

“She simply does what the Left despises: she gives as good as she gets,” Mr Stanley concluded.

During her speech, Ms Dorries also attacked “lefties.”

This follows the Culture Secretary’s social media post in which he mocked “left wing snowflakes.”

“I don’t think they all opposed my position,” she told MPs on Wednesday, “but there were certainly a vocal number, mostly, possibly entirely male, who quite frequently commented and continue to comment.”

“Did they all come from the left?” enquires the narrator.

“Yes, I believe there were a few people who, unfortunately, used my appointment as a political attack, and that did happen.”

“Were these people clearly on the left?”

The 64-year-old vehemently denied any allegations that she was threatening to slash BBC funding.

She denied reports that she had criticized Nick Robinson, the BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter, following a Conservative party conference interview with the Prime Minister, while giving evidence to the committee.

“Nick Robinson has cost the BBC a lot of money,” the Culture Secretary is said to have said.

“Prime Minister, stop talking,” Mr Robinson said during the interview, “we are going to have questions and answers, not where you just talk, if you wouldn’t mind.”

When the interview was finished,
