Former Tory MP Joins Lib Dem’s

TBG can confirm tonight that a former Tory MP sensationally joined the Lib Dem’s.

Totnes MP Sarah Wollaston who is chair of the Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee has been sitting as an Independent since leaving Change UK.

She was originally elected as a Tory in 2010, 2015, and 2017.

Woolaston’s the second ex member of Change UK to join the Lib Dem’s.

The first being ex Labour MP Chuka Umunna.

One Tory close to Boris Johnson tonight posted on Twitter

Oh @SarahWollaston! How radicalised you’ve become, a pro-EU fanatic, who promised your poor Totnes constituents at GE2017 that you would never back another referendum & now have defected to the LibDem’s without a by-election.
