Defections Update

In Stockwell a former Lib Dem by-election candidate Ros Munday has left the yellow party and rejoined Labour.

In Havant Lib Dem Councillor Ron Purkis has joined the ruling Conservative group.

Meanwhile in Bexley Lib Dem Councillor and 2005 parliamentary candidate Nick O’Hare has defected to the Conservatives. Interestingly, the local Lib Dems are calling on their former colleague to “do the honourable thing and resign” so he can fight the seat under his new party’s colours.

Funny how they never said that when, say, Paul Marsden defected to the Lib Dems.
