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

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.
