So Robert Jackson, MP for Wantage, has 'crossed the floor'.
I stood against Robert at the last election and have met him several times since in my County Councillor role.
I'm not surprised by his decision. He clearly had misgivings about the direction of the Tories before the last election and his pro-European and pro-Tuition Fees views are well known. However much I might disagree with him on politics, he has always struck me as a thoughtful and principled man.
Are the Tories ever going to get any good news?
