The Conservative MP for Dover has staged a dramatic defection to Labour saying her former party has become a 'byword for incompetence and division'. Natalie Elphicke became the second Tory MP to switch parties in two weeks in another major blow to Rishi Sunak as she crossed the floor of the Commons before PMQs. In a move that took Westminster by surprise, and went down badly with some Labour MPs owing to her 'hard-right views', Elphicke said the UK needed to move on from Sunak's 'tired and chaotic' government, accusing the prime minister of failing on border security.
