Douglas Carswell (MP for Clacton), defects to UKIP and resigns his seat to fight the ensuing by-election.

Sorry to be childish, but...

Why am I not in the least surprised that no one here thought the assault on Galloway was worth a mention? I'm sure that if the "sides" had been reversed, we wouldn't have heard the end of it.

Carswell should win re-election easily, according to two polls:

True (although bear in mind that those are constituency polls, which aren't always the best), but my point was that I never actually thought that a sitting Conservative M.P would defect to UKIP, and even if I had, I would never have thought it would be Carswell (the only one I could possibly have seen defecting was Nadine Dorries Tongue)

By-election polling has actually improved somewhat during this parliament.

Curious that Clacton has been more heavily polled than Scotland over the past week.

Maybe Dorries will defect now, pending on Carswell's re-election effort.

Scientists remain rare in the Commons, particularly ones who are also Papal Knights. I can't say that I agreed with all his views, but I greatly prefer his style of Labour conservatism (so to speak) to that of the MP for the other half of Rochdale MBC... RIP.

Mick Cash has been elected as the new RMT General Secretary. Cash was Bob Crow's deputy and had been serving as his temporary replacement. He is on the ex-NUR 'right-wing' of the union and is a Labour Party member and defeated several candidates to his left (certain of which were to the left of the late Bob Crow as it happens).

The SNP announces that it has doubled it's membership since Thursday and now claims a higher level of membership than the Lib Dems.
