Stunned silence greets Nadine Dorries' appointment as 10th culture secretary in 10 years

Nadine Dorries has replaced Oliver Dowden as the Secretary of State for Digital, Media, Culture and Sport in the UK – becoming the 10th person to hold the role in the past 10 years.

Her appointment has received a somewhat muted reception from the industries that she will be responsible for.

There has been a distinct lack of welcome messages from industry bodies and leaders, while we're being told 'no comment' and finding official comments impossible to source.

Dorries, who has served as MP for Mid Bedfordshire since 2005, is perhaps best known for her controversial appearance on the reality TV programme I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here in 2012, which earned her a six-month suspension from the Conservative whip.

What are your views on her appointment? What will Dorries bring to the table? We'd be interested to get your feedback.
