Glad that Theresa griffin has made it to a likely winnable seat in the NW. The second LibDem elected defected to the Tories which isn't going to do them any favours here.

"The second LibDem elected defected to the Tories which isn't going to do them any favours here."

it wouldn't do any favour to LD or to the Tories? Or both?

All anxiously waiting to see if they can join the gravy train and fill their pockets!

Neither, Andrea. But probably will affect the LD's more.

For example, I did vote LD in the last Euro elections but it would make me think twice next time - though I think the defector is something of an opportunist. He was making vociferous anti-Tory speeches the week before and was associated with the left wing of the LD's.

Who placed 4th in NW? That is winnable too. Eight seats. three Tories - including the defective, one Lib Dem, one last seat up for grabs.
