In his resignation letter, Quentin Davies, MP for Grantham and Stamford Quentin Davies told Tory Leader David Cameron:
Under your leadership the Conservative Party appears to me to have ceased collectively to believe in anything, or to stand for anything.
It has no bedrock. It exists on shifting sands. A sense of mission has been replaced by a PR agenda.
Although you have many positive qualities you have three, superficiality, unreliability and an apparent lack of any clear convictions, which in my view ought to exclude you from the position of national leadership to which you aspire and which it is the presumed purpose of the Conservative Party to achieve.
Believing that as I do, I clearly cannot honestly remain in the party. I do not intend to leave public life.
Mr Davies said he had "found increasingly I am naturally in agreement" with the Labour Party and praised Mr Brown as "a leader I have always greatly admired, who I believe is entirely straightforward, and who has a towering record, and a clear vision for the future of our country which I fully share".
Welcome to the Labour Party Quentin.
