Heidi Allen joins the Liberal Democrats

The Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party keeps on growing with news from South Cambridgeshire:

Former Conservative MP Heidi Allen has been unveiled as the latest recruit to the Liberal Democrats, declaring that at least 20 more “one-nation Tories” would like to follow suit.

Ms Allen told The Independent the Conservative Party no longer offered a home for MPs from its centrist tradition, though she admitted she did not know if any would have the “bravery” to jump ship.

Full praise is due for the warm and generous response from our now former PPC:

  1. As Ian says, it must be hugely disappointing for anyone in his position. But Liberal Democrats are stoical in doing what is right for the country and right for the Party.. but in turn the Party really must make great efforts to accommodate that person who generously stands aside, it is no small gesture and we should make one in return..
    I can’t think of anything, but perhaps our new President will have an idea.. maybe free conference attendance for the duration, til the following General Election.?
