LONDRES, September 15 (Hfrance.fr) - Nadine Dorries , bestselling author and former reality TV star, was appointed UK minister for new media and sports on Wednesday, a broad and politically sensitive role in overseeing culture, premier football and deals
Dorries is a prolific author who has produced a number of books, including a fictional trilogy that tells the stories of several families living in the English town of Liverpool, where she grew up.
The most controversial issues in the department of digital, culture, media and sport include the future of BBC, if Channel 4 is to be privatized and if the British chip designer ARM is to be acquired by Nvidia Corp (NVDA.O) in a $ 40 billion deal.
The UK competition regulator has previously said that the purchase of Softbank from Japan could hurt competition and weaken competitors, and requires further investigation.
His predecessor Oliver Dowden was to say whether thepolitically sensitive agreement would also have an impact on national security. learn more
Dorries, a former nurse, became an MP in 2005 and previously worked as Minister of Health. In recent years, she has been poised to embark on the so-called culture wars in Britain, attacking the "left-wing snowflakes " that she says make the world a culturally poorer place.
In 2012, she appeared on the reality TV show "I 'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here ", but she was the first contestant to be banned from the show.
Dorries was suspended from the Conservative Party before the reality TV event aired after she was accused of surrendering to Australia to participate in the showwithout asking permission from his party. Report by Andrew MacAskill and Kate Holton
