Tory Defection Rumours
The blogosphere has been alive with rumours that Tory MP John Bercow might defect to Labour, nowehere more so than on the new Sky News blog by Adam Boulton (or, at any rate, by lots of other people writing on Boulton's blog). Conservative Home reports this morning, however, that Bercow has just been readopted by his local Conservative Association. Seems unlikely that that would happen if Mr. Bercow ere thinking of defecting. In fact, Bercow is a committed and free-thinking Tory, and I guess the result of his independent approach is sometimes to tar him as a possible defector.
