Nadine Dorries claims that a senior anonymous adviser to Rishi Sunak cut up a rabbit and nailed it to the family’s home

The headline sounds startling and it is. Online news media is reporting that Nadine Dorries, a former cabinet minister in the UK government, has made some extraordinary accusations in her book entitled: The Plot: the Political Assassination of Boris Johnson. It’s being sterilised in the news media.

In the first published extract of her serialised book, she claims that there was a powerful Conservative figure who she labels ‘Dr. No’. She doesn’t name the man except that the name she gave him comes from Ian Fleming’s James Bond villain.

She accuses this mysterious adviser of an extraordinary act made all the more shocking as he was very close to Rishi Sunak because the Prime Minister “doesn’t move without first seeking his advice”.

She says the following about him in her book:

“Dr. No was once on remand in prison for alleged arson. When a girlfriend ended their relationship, it is rumoured that he had her little brother’s pet rabbit chopped into four and nailed to the front door of the family home to greet him when he got home from school, in true Mafia style.”

She writes in her book that this man was “paid by Central Office, has a pass to number 10 and, some say, Rishi Sunak doesn’t move without first seeking his advice”.

Notice the present tense in that statement at the time of publication of her book which implies that the man might still be in place at number 10 Downing Street, the home of the British government for international readers.

She further claimed that he has been employed in a very senior position in the Conservative party since the 1990s and has worked for every administration. He’s worked for the David Cameron administration and then following that Therea May’s and Boris Johnson’s administration.
