The final straw for Cllr Les Byrom CBE, was David Cameron's failure to support the Govermment in today's Commons vote on extending pre-trial detention to a maximum 42 days.
Cllr Byrom has written to David Cameron to resign from the Conservative party, saying the Tory line on pre-trial detention is
"typical of a general approach to the serious issues our nation faces and one I can no longer support".Cllr Byrom is a big player in North West politics as Leader of Sefton Council for almost 15 years and the Conservatives' North West Regional Assembly Group Leader.
Good to see another top Tory no longer prepared to put up with David Cameron's shallow salesmanship and failure to deal with the serious issues facing the country.
Welcome to Labour Les.
