More LibDem Defection Rumours

For all those LibDems who are slagging me off for promulgating defection rumours read THIS. I am not alone.

It's still the same old words cropping up - "speculation", "rumour" - and the speculation is that 3 unnamed MPs are "considering" their options.

Unsurprisingly, I hope this is untrue. In all honesty, I have to admit that I'd be surprised and disappointed if an MP did defect.

Personally, I'm of the opinion that Cameron's "liberalism" is a trick. For liberal Tories, it must feel like manna from heaven after Howard and IDS, but in the long-run Cameron can't please all of the people all of the time. I just can't buy the idea that Cameron is offering genuine liberalism. fwiw, my latest blog post covers my thoughts on this matter.

It's in the Guardian so it must be right... er, well...

And serial defector Elletson wants to defect back - who does he think he is - Churchill or something?

You're welcome to Elletson. Anything else is a fabrication.

Mr Dale - this goes a long way to debunk these rumours.

It's nearly 6pm and nothing yet on Hughes. Is this in itself a kind of statement?

I think you misspelled defecation.

Iain, I will keep my identity to myself, but I have served on the East of England executive for the Lib Dems and also am a senior councillor in Norfolk and can certainly say I am on the inside track when it comes to knowledge of people and things Lib Dem in this area.

To call this man from West Suffolk a nobody is to do a dis-service to nobodies ! Please don't take this the wrong way (oo-er), as I am sure that all political parties make a fuss about any PPC defecting, but he really, really would not have a clue as to what Lib Dem MP's are thinking because, to put it quite plainly, Lib Dem MP's don't know who he is anyway !
