Tories step up hunt for defectors

In Uncategorized on March 23, 2007 at 10:45 pm

I just got this from the BBC website. I don’t really like this sort of thing. Call me old fashioned, but if I voted Lib-Dem and the Lib-Dem candidate was elected, I don’t think I would be very happy if I suddenly had a Tory MP.

I know we have to live in the real world and a couple of defections from Labour in particular would be fantastic for us politically, but I still think it is up to those MPs who want to defect to make overtones to us.

If I look in to my crystal ball, I can foresee some defections in the future, but not now. I don’t think there is a MP who would defect to the Conservatives until we have firm policies. This October the party conference will debate those policies and I hope we will then have something firm to offer the electorate.
