Breaking News: Lib Dem MEP defects to Conservatives

Liberal MEP for the North West Sajjad Kaarim has announced he is defecting to the Conservatives.

This will be a blow for the Lib Dems. Their leadership election has been a disaster, so this will hurt them at a time when they are vulnerable. I wonder if it is the first of many?

It is a brave step for Sajjad Karim, who is articulating himself extremely well on Sky News at the moment. I wonder how he is going to deal with the huge gap there is between Conservative policy on Europe and the one he has supported as a Lib Dem?

Interesting to note that a Lib Dem has chosen to defect to the Conservatives rather than Labour as was the case a few weeks ago.

I am deeply suspicious of those who cross the floor - can their loyalty be trusted - is it perhaps because they want to be part of a winning team? If that's the case then his defection is an endorsement of the recent polls.
