Confusion or realignment, will Lady Nicholson state?
Lib Dem peer Lady Nicholson has just announced she has re-defected back to the Tories.
Nicholson’s defection comes 20 years after she defected to the Lib Dems from the Tories because of what she called the party’s “shilly- shallying” over Europe.
In 1995, Nicholson also said the Tories anti-EU policies were “rotten for Britain, bad for our people and abominable for trade”.
Erm … Nicholson doesn’t think the Tories are “shilly-shallying” enough over Europe now?
