Anna Soubry suggests to the New Statesman that she would consider defecting from the Tories if a new centrist party was formed with Labour and LibDem Remainers:
“If it could somehow be the voice of a moderate, sensible, forward-thinking, visionary middle way, with open minds – actually things which I’ve believed in all my life – better get on with it.”
Soubry has done it before, she leaft the Tories in 1981 to join the Social Democrat Party (SDP) from 1981 until it was dissolved in 1988. Guido reckons she would do it again.
Penny for the thoughts of Broxtowe Tory association…
UPDATE: Good timing for Clegg to be sitting on the Labour frontbench:
