Former Labour MP Brian Sedgemore has defected to the Liberal Democrats. This is good news - Sedgemore made a brilliant libertarian speech in the Commons on 23rd February, opposing the government's Prevention of Terrorism Bill. He has also voted with the Liberal Democrats against the government on a number of other issues, notably Iraq. Monday night's BBC2 Newsnight reported that Sedgemore is claiming that several more ex-Labour MPs are about to leave their party.
Just a thought, but is there any chance New Labour would agree to take in return the Lib Dems' odious clique of right-wing nutters in "Liberal Future" ?
