I Like My Liberalism Tough

'Veteran former Labour MP defects'

I'm inclined to say 'meh' here, after all, he'd been nudging closer and closer to them throughout the last Parliament and it's not as if he was standing for re-election. A Labour to Tory defection would be more newsworthy but I suspect that this defection fits in perfectly with The Independent's agenda, which is why it's their front page lead. I'm not quite sure how Brian Sedgemore, someone on the Campaign Group left of Labour who used to write books about 'The Establishment', will be received by his new party, but I shan't deprive them of their opportunity to gloat.

Perhaps he was swayed by the magnetic charms of Don Foster...
