The top five bombshells in Nadine Dorries’s new book

Nadine Dorries Reveals Why She Decided To Step Down With ‘Immediate Effect’
Nadine Dorries’s new book – The Plot – comes out in just three days’ time, and already its revelations are gripping Westminster.
Ms Dorries, who served as a top Cabinet Minister under Boris Johnson, is set to detail a secret plot by shadowy political figures to “assassinate” Mr Johnson and remove him from power.
Publisher HarperCollins has described the tome as a “seismic, fly-on-the-wall account of how the saviour of the Conservative party became a pariah”, promising it will feature “unparalleled access, from multiple inside sources talking with astonishing candour”.
The book has already been delayed by legal issues, a clear sign that the claims within are set to be dynamite.
The Plot has been serialised in the Mail for the last few days, and the Express takes you through some of the most jaw-dropping excerpts.

1. ‘Dr No’ – the No. 10 mafia-like fixer
Ms Dorries says that one figure central to the downfall of Mr Johnson was a shadowy character many outside Downing Street will never have heard of.
“Dr No”, as he is described in the book, is even accused of unhinged “mafia-style” tactics.
According to Ms Dorries, Dr No even had a pet rabbit cut up into four and nailed to his ex-girlfriend’s front door to greet them when he got home from school. She also claimed he was once on remand in prison for alleged arson.
The Mail spoke to the ex-girlfriend’s brother, who ominously confirmed that “something happened” to his rabbit when he was younger, around the time his sister split with the No. 10 operator.
Dr No has been involved with the top branches of the Tory party for around 30 years, with “full access to Downing Street”.
2. MPs’ sex session with prostitute on billiard table
Ms Dorries has revealed a raft of new sexual scandals involving Tory MPs.
In the book, she claims to have found out about numerous new behaviour breaches by Conservatives, including:
An MP had sex with a prostitute on a billiard table watched by four other cheering MPs
Another MP stored a laptop containing indecent images of children on behalf of a relative
The Tory Whips’ office is claimed to be in possession of a video of a Minister engaged in an adulterous sexual act
She has also sparked a row about whether the Tory Party covered up for a “serial rapist” MP, after alluding to one incident in the book.
Yesterday the Deputy Prime Minister was forced to deny that payments to a victim of the MP had ever “crossed his desk” during his tenure as Tory chairman.

3. Infamous gold wallpaper in No. 10 never existed
Speaking to a source nicknamed “Moneypenny”, Ms Dorries claims that the infamous Downing Street redecoration row, replete with claims of “gold wallpaper”, never actually existed.
Moneypenny claims the shadowy group of anti-Boris figures, including Dominic Cummings and Michael Gove, plotted to discredit Mr Johnson with untrue claims.
Moneypenny says: “There was no gold wallpaper. It never existed. It wasn’t quoted for; it was never hung. Does such a thing even exist? What Boris and Carrie did was have the dining room wall painted red to celebrate the red-wall victories in the Election.”
Ms Dorries claims Wallpapergate was “likely” created by Dominic Cummings and Lee Cain.
4. Boris claims his ‘Partygate’ fine was like a witch trial
Mr Johnson told Ms Dorries that the Met Police fine he received for receiving an unboxed birthday cake in his office was “utterly mad”. The former PM compared the Partygate episode to akin to the Salem witch trials.
Challenged why he called for the inquiry into parties, Mr Johnson replied: “I literally asked for a report because I didn’t know what had happened.
“It was utterly mad. It was kind of like Salem. The idea of an illicit party. Absolute nonsense. There were people working around the clock to save others from a virus. My efforts were totally fixed on getting us a vaccine; that was the way out of this mess.
“Nothing I attended in the way of thanking people, to keep morale up in the office with those I was sitting down with and working with all day long, went on for longer than was strictly necessary. Of course, the notion of Partygate was a fantastic piece of media. BBC and Sky, they ran with it.”
5. Hancock CCTV camera had been ‘tampered with’
Ms Dorries claims that the CCTV camera that captured Matt Hancock locking lips with his Department for Health advisor had been “tampered with” so it no longer faced the balcony.
Ms Dorries’s Department for Culture Media and Sport was “directly opposite” Mr Hancock’s Department for Health, and following the scandal she checked her own camera.
She said: “We now know the security camera in Matt’s office that filmed him had been tampered with. My office in the Department of Health was directly opposite his and I had a camera on my ceiling, too. Both cameras faced outwards, looking towards the balconies considered to be a security weak spot.
“The day after the story broke, I checked the camera in my office; it was still directly facing the balcony. Someone had rotated Matt’s inwards.
“An inquiry found that the camera had been turned to face the door because it gave access to the roof. Only the door it was facing didn’t have access to the roof: that was on the wall opposite to the one the camera was facing. It had been switched to catch him in flagrante.”
