Quentin Davies: Rat Joins Sinking Ship

It seems Quentin Davies, MP for Grantham and Stamford has defected from the Conservative party to the Labour party.

In an open letter to David Cameron he says he is leaving because:
"Under your leadership the Conservative Party appears to me to have ceased collectively to believe in anything, or to stand for anything.

"It has no bedrock. It exists on shifting sands. A sense of mission has been replaced by a PR agenda."
Has he not read Built to Last? Or heard Cameron's speech last week which built on good old solid Conservative principles?

Well, if he can't read or listen, then he does not seem to be much of a loss to me.

The BBC has this.

I can't think that you guys will consider it a great loss ~ as the bloke on the Beeb said, 'he's always been considered a wet. So wet in fact, that he's dripping'

Perhaps , Benedict , he did read Built To Last and Cameron's speech last week and it finally clicked that Cameron and his party are pure spin with no policies or principles .

Cameron and his party are pure spin with no policies or principles.
In common with this blog, the cons party refuse to address what are clear and present dangers to the continuation of this society as we know it.
Does it really matter a flying fu-k if a fellow crosses the house, when both parties are preaching the same crap?
The situation right now resembles the situation of the early 1930s, when warning voices were ignored and vilified.
Benedict, you are a glaring example of the vanity of the idiotic self preening of the "chattering classes", both here and within the beltway.
This technology gives you a perfect opportunity.
You insist on pissing it away.
Wake up man!!
