Another defector does well

Following his 24 hour burst of publicity, poor old deluded Quentin Davies looks like he is falling into obscurity already, however another recent defector seems to be doing rather much better. After the news that Tory turncoat Shaun Woodward has now been made Northern Ireland Secretary after being parachuted into a safe Labour seat, it seems that Labour switcher Rehman Christi has been chosen for the notionally Tory seat of Gillingham and now must be odds-on to join the Conservative benches after the next election. It seems a little 50:50 if defectors go on to do well at the moment. I wonder if any other Tory, Labour or LibDem MPs fancy their chances?

It always makes me think about Paul Marsden who quit Labour for the LibDems and then changed back a few years later.
