In a carefully timed PR exercise, Tory MP Quentin Davies has defected from the Conswervative Party to Liebour.
Davies is the MP for Grantham and Stamford and a eurofederalist. He has been at loggerheads with the Tory party and Call Me Dave for a while now so his departure isn’t really a shock although where he chose to go and the reasons are strange to say the least.
His resignation letter makes interesting reading. He says “Under your leadership the Conservative Party appears to me to have ceased collectively to believe in anything, or to stand for anything”. Not many will argue there but he then goes on to say “It has no bedrock. It exists on shifting sands. A sense of mission has been replaced by a PR agenda”. Liebour has reinvented itself so many times, announcing reform after reform and spends the GDP of a small country on PR and spin.
The PR from the Liebour Party claims this is a high profile scalp but I’ve never heard of Quentin Davies before. Is he anyone important?
