MP Lisa Cameron defects to the Tories. A bit of a damper on the SNP conference!

She sounds like one of these SNP MPs Tenruh is always on about who was only there to further her career and had no real conviction about independence.

Thanks for the belated recognition, but the Tories?
She was getting removed for her stance on the Patrick Grady affair....that`s the troughing over for her.

She must have tossed a coin between Labour and the Tories and the Tories won. I bet her constituents are pleased they are now represented by a Tory! It`s farcical that MPs (or MSPs) can switch parties without recourse to the electorate.

Once again, in a relatively short time span, a sitting MP brings our archaic electoral system into disrepute.

She should do the decent thing and resign.

Less than 12% of the electorate voted Conservative there in the General Election in 2015 - what possible justification is there for the constituency now being represented a Tory ?

Of course she could take the honourable course of action, resign and stand as a Tory, if chosen, at the resultant by election...............with the same prospects as Margaret Ferrier perhaps ?

You don`t vote for a political party, it`s the individual you vote for.

The last option both the tories and nuSNP would want at the moment is a by-election.

Wonder how long she`s been in the tories pockets....she`ll have been well debriefed.

"You don`t vote for a political party, it`s the individual you vote for. "

Therefore logically she should resign and stand as a candidate in a by election.

Logic doesn`t come into it.

She`s not broken any parliamentary rules by changing her political party.

Why should she be penalised for being bullied.

That`s the fault of our long outdated electoral system at Westminster level - you can stand and be elected then change parties and still remain as MP.

The Tories didn`t even come second, or anywhere near it, in the constituency 2015 - being represented by an MP where 1 in 8 voted for the her new party is farcical.

We vote for individuals but the number of individuals who represent the same party are added up to see which party has the chance to form a government. In theory a number of them could defect the next day to another party which could then have a majority. Isn`t British democracy wonderful?

There haven`t been many MPs who have fought a by-election after switching parties.

Dick Taverne retained Lincoln in the 70s

Bruce Douglas-Mann did and lost in the 80s.

Carswell and Reckless won for UKIP in 2014.

Can`t think of many more.

I don`t think Dick Douglas did when he joined the SNP.

Patrick Grady didn`t when he became an Independent (although he was let back in, which led to this)

If there were some rule about resignations then the MP would sit tight, vote with their conscience, then lose the whip. If you force a by-election every time that happens, then you`d always be having by-elections, or have the situation when a relatively few parliamentarians are overruling the wishes of the constituency.

If memory serves, Dick Douglas wasn’t an MP when he switched to the SNP - he had lost his seat in Feb. 1974 to George Reid in one of the biggest “shock” results in decades - and failed to regain it that October.

It was much later he defected, late `80s/early `90s.

I remember being puzzled that the seat was described as a "Labour Hold" in 1992 (I think). So from that perspective it must be the party we were voting for not the candidate.

Douglas joined the SNP in 1990 while still a Labour MP for Dunfermline. He deflected to the SNP due to his stance re the poll tax. Surprised he never resigned to cause a by-election. ( tongue in cheek comment)

I remember running the Dunfermline half marathon in 1987. He entered the race, but may have got disqualified as he removed the sponsors name from his runners number.

I had forgotten that Labour gave Dick Douglas another chance after he lost Clacks & East Stirling in 1973 - twice.

Remarkable in that he`d managed to lose this seat after a 10,000 + majority from the previous election.

Bullied out her house now as the locals aren`t happy.

What`s strange is she felt the need to inform the media of her whereabouts. Also strange that the reason for her sudden deflection relates to events from some months ago. If she`s that slow to do things then she will fit right in with the Tories but equally would be in her element in the SNP!

Her defection is down to her being deselected by SNP members who voted for her challenger on who will stand at next election.
The reason she was deselected has been building over time, first she became known was when Westminster had a vote on legalisation of abortion in Northern Ireland due to Stormont not sitting.
She voted against it on religious grounds against the wishes of her local SNP constituency group and her constituents.
At the time she was crying about online bullying, which was no more than valid criticism of her decision to vote based on her religious beliefs.
Then her outspoken opposition to trans rights against party policy and the views of her SNP constituency group.
Now she is crying about bullying again when it`s just more valid criticism. I don`t believe for a second she has received any threats but if she has the police should be involved and charge those making the threats.

I`m aware she`s receiving counselling and it does seem like the support is needed. I don`t say that in a mean way. Politics can be highly stressful and it would appear her political leanings simply didn`t align well with the SNP. It would perhaps have been better for her to say that than throw around accusations. That said, I do think it sounds like she`s been under a lot of pressure and it`s good she`s sought out support.

SIF, I could believe that she voted against the wishes of her snp constituency group as that would be a lot easier to gauge (a few dozen members maybe?) but how do you know she voted against the wishes of her constituents?
Also I don`t believe she only received `valid criticism`. That`s just not how it goes down these days. I don`t think it`s too outlandish to believe that she received a fair amount of personal abuse.
I`m not casting an opinion on her on way or another here by the way and I`m certainly not defending her.

Mike Russell says she’s had a bizarre tantrum.

There is no room for ego politics he says ( meanwhile ego free Sturgeon signs off a lucrative deal on her memoirs having previously published one lauding her own speeches)

According to Mike this wasn’t the only only matter she was receiving treatment for…Yes Mike, were you sitting beside her in the doc’s consulting room? And tantrums are just another wimmin of a certain age thing?

Joanna Cherry and Neile Hanvey were also bullied by the pack, and they quickly jumped on Margaret Ferrier, despicable bunch , that said the electorate let them know their feelings in Ferriers case.
And when a snowball ❄️ starts rolling it only gets bigger.
Bye bye nuSNP and their "in denial" following.

Lastly the nuSNP payroll all wanted the continuity candidate to replace Sturgeon but the one consideration they forgot about was , would the electorate accept it .
Bye bye you bisto slurpers.

I don`t remember her saying she would quit the party if she didn`t win her leadership challenge only a few months ago.
She will probably lose her seat to a unionist anyway so her desire for independence (which I suspect was only to further her career and get her nose in the trough anyway) won`t have any bearing on her election defeat.
Still she rode on Sturgeon`s coat tails and has taken several hundred thousand pounds in wages from the public purse in doing so.

I don`t remember her saying she would quit the party if she didn`t win her leadership challenge only a few months ago.
She will probably lose her seat to a unionist anyway so her desire for independence (which I suspect was only to further her career and get her nose in the trough anyway) won`t have any bearing on her election defeat.
Still she rode on Sturgeon`s coat tails and has taken several hundred thousand pounds in wages from the public purse in doing so.


How long did it take you to realise Sturgeon was a traitor?

Why do you think she stood against the continuity candidate?

She`s explained herself today. Is she anymore a fake that Sturgeon is?

Was she wrong in giving up her cabinet position defending women`s rights

Here's her speech today

So you think she`s just as fake as Sturgeon?
So she put what she believes to be women`s rights ahead of independence.
Thing is she may have done better in the leadership election of so many of her supporters hadn`t given up on independence and left for Alba. All of those people should have fought harder to steer the SNP in the direction they wanted. Quitters though aren`t they. Certainly don`t have the spirit of The Bruce or that wee spider in the cave.

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Woman`s rights are definitely way ahead of Independence,

Why do you think the continuity candidate gave up his action against the Nursery a few weeks before Sturgeon resigned? Think it's called grooming. The country never voted for him as FM, Don't you think he should resign.

The troughers removed the members powers and the grassroots left the party, I think it is around 50,000 to this date. Why ?

At least British Labour got 50 years of slurping.

I believe the nuSNP have selected Brian Goodall to replace Douglas Chapman how do you think he'll do ?

Women`s rights, trans rights, economy, defence, etc. All sorts of things are more important to different people than independence. It`s probably the biggest reason why you and I will never see and independent Scotland.
No heard anything about Chapman being deselected by the party members but it wouldn`t matter as I think there would be a good chance he`d be deselected by the electorate in twelve months anyway along with a couple of dozen other SNP MP`s and both the Alba ones.

I think Chapman may have jumped before he was pushed? All political parties will put in place the person they think have best chance of being elected.

MPs feel pretty pointless in Scotland tbh. Most of the things important to local people are more relevant to the local MSP. I genuinely don`t believe most people understand what`s council, what`s Holyrood and what`s Westminster. All politicians are bundled into the same pile

The continuity candidate was given prior notice of Sturgeons run to the exit door, so was groomed well in advance of the two honest candidates.
Why did he drop his court case against the Seik family which ran the nursery? Didn`t look good when you want votes ?
