The defection of Top Tory Quentin Davies poses an ethical dilemma. Some people are pleased because it hurts the Tory Party, others angry because it involves a right-wing Tory becoming a Labour MP. Quentin is probably in fact even more right-wing than other comrades such as Red Shaun.
The important thing to remember is that the priority at all times is to support whatever will harm the Conservative Party. Quentin Davies is not, in fact, going to be able to use his new position to advance his support for the death penalty or any of the other loathsome causes that he supports, and the net effect of his defection is up the workers and down with the Tories. Also his resignation letter was obviously his own work and was quality.
I will, though, be upset if he becomes a minister tomorrow.
