MP Nadine Dorries has come fourth in the TaxPayers' Alliance Pinhead of the Year contest.

The Mid-Bedfordshire representative received 12.4 per cent of the votes with Ed Davey MP coming top with more than 42 per cent.

Conservative back-bencher Mark Reckless MP was named the Pin-up of the Year after securing 36.3 per cent of the votes.

Votes were cast online in the 10 days running up to Christmas Eve.

Tory Ms Dorries was nominated for leaving her constituents unrepresented in Parliament when she agreed to take part in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Jonathan Isaby, political director of campaign group The TaxPayers' Alliance, said: "The TaxPayers’ Alliance has always believed that as well as making examples of those who have shown a disregard for public money, it is important to recognise those who have sought to do the right thing by taxpayers.

"Both our winners and the runners-up for these two awards all either acted in the best interests of taxpayers or showed a disregard for taxpayers' cash over the last twelve months. All those in power can rest assured that over the coming year we at the TaxPayers' Alliance will continue to assess their words and deeds and make sure that those deemed to be Pin-Ups or Pinheads are brought to the attention of the wider public."

    Nadine Dorries has now been featured in this Sunday's Telegraph Heroes and Villians of 2012. As one of the Villians,obviously. I've reached the point where I'm thoroughly ashamed of the person who represents us in Mid Beds

    Don't you all know? Ms Dorries who may or may not have been married to Mr Dorries is the MP for Mid Narnia, her very own fantasy land where every thing she says is true.

    BarrieB has said exactly what many people are thinking. I was shocked at her photo beside the pool in Australia when she showed almost all of her breast's and her arrogance at Heathrow. The Whip has NOT been taken and the Chief Whip has NOT asked to see me. This MP ( she doesn't deserve the title MP ) lives in a fantasy world. Later she said---so haughty "Had a Happy Meeting With The Chief Whip" Oh so he DID want to see her then. Ms Dorries you need to seek some advice as you have a problem with reality. And to think this woman makes decision's this is scary. I wonder if she knows there was an outcry from ex Pat's who wish to write to The Chief Whip ?

    For someone in such a privileged position Dorries continues to let down her constituents.Being labelled Mad Nad is one title too many.It is unfortunate that she cannot use her position to improve the fortunes of Mid Beds instead of using it for her own self interests .Alienating a large number of her constituents and the local media (BoS)is a very foolish path to take.Perhaps Nadine could put her energies into causes worthy of being an MP instead of constantly seeking notoriety.

    many Mid Beds folk would like to Vote that Dorries is kicked out of office. She does not deserve to be an MP Her behaviour in 2012 has been outrageous. She jumps on any issue that will bring her attention. Her latest issue is --I love Boris and want him as our PM We hope she does not have the Whip returned. We certainly have seen enough of her in 2012 to last a lifetime. At least she has shownher true colours and won't be voted back in 2005
