Richard Grayson has hurled himself overboard from the Lib Dems. Sort of. Instead of resigning he is simply letting his membership lapse (how truly Lib Dem.)

He was never of the nasty Orange persuasion (much) but his thinking is interesting - and gives some hope.

In the comments there appear to be some that still persist with the idea that they are reigning in Tory excesses. Amazing.

Indeed.
I’m in the same boat, though I have not cancelled my direct debt as yet yet. But what makes me sad / scared is not only losing faith in the party I’ve supported for 16 years, but finding that there is no political home for someone with my principles in the UK.
A definition of 'principles' of which I was previously unaware...
