'You are superficial, unreliable and unfit to lead' - Defecting Conservative MP to David Cameron

This is like landing in ice cream. The Guardian have posted more comments from defecting Conservative MP Quentin Davies. This is more of what he wrote to David Cameron:

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.

And this is what he told the Press Association:

The Conservatives are either wrong - on the NHS, on nuclear power, on Europe, on many things - or they simply do not know what they want or what they believe.

Crikey! My cup runneth over! Meanwhile Iain Dale and Conservative Home are going into Bitchfest mode. The claws are out. Here's Mr Dale:

Tory turncoat joins Labour - Oh dear, oh dear. Quentin Davies has defected to the Labour Party. He has certainly been semi-detached from the Party for some time and is someone who has always thought that his talents have never been recognised by the Conservative leadership. Despite being thought to be on the left of the Party he supported Iain Duncan Smith in 2001 and flirted very much with David Davis in 2005. IDS made him Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, but David Trimble thought he was bonkers and refused to have meetings with him. I guess that like Peter Temple-Morris, he views this as his only way into the House of Lords. What a disloyal s***.
