No Safe Seat for ‘Turnaround’ Ballot MP

So the plot thickens in regard to ‘ballot bill’ MP James Wharton.

The Independent has revealed that Wharton had previously accused the Conservative party of concentrating too much of their efforts on the in/out Europe debate.

His turnaround is being blamed on the fact that his Stockton South seat is by no means a safe one. Ian Burrell and Andrew Grice, in their profile of Wharton, yesterday revealed

‘With a majority of just 332 votes in the normally solid Labour seat, he is smart enough to know that he might not get the chance to represent his constituents for a second term.’

Europe being the vote-catcher it is at the moment, this situation has highlighted, once again, a politician who is willing to sacrifice his personal integrity for votes.
