Not being anything political but???

Does anyone think it right for an MP who was elected for a particular party to suddenly change camps,surely the elecorate who put them in in the first place voted for a party and not the person so shouldnt they resign if they are unsettled and let the voters pick who they want.

If my MP did that he would go on his own.

Its completley wrong they should just resign
and get another job.

Aitch,I disagree.When a person puts him or herself up for election it should be that person not the party you vote for otherwise why should it be necessary to elect an individual,just vote for your favourite political party and let them choose your representative.No,when I go to vote,and voting is compulsory in Oz,I select the candidate who I feel may represent my views and the policies for the general good but of course I don't always get it right because,guess what? he or she is inclined to follow party lines once they are elected,and put a different spin on their pre-election promises.As for changing allegiances I think that takes courage,it is just an advance on "crossing the floor" during parliamentary debate,so it's back to what I say,you should vote for the person not the party.

I disagree I voted for the party as I have always done, the MP we have I have never seen here, only on the telly and he is Scottish, but the point still remains irrespective of who the candidate was I voted for a party which I thought would help the working class, and although its not happened here I dont think I would like my MP to up sticks and defect to another side that would be making a mockery of who I voted for
