I am now reporting that Wajid Khan will join the Conservative ranks tomorrow as a backbench MP. Doing so protects Khan from cynicism of the press and opposition of making such a political move for career advancement, or for monetary considerations. Khan joins the Tories without taking a position in either cabinet or as a Parliamentary secretary.
Well, that sucks. Apparently, he will cite (socon?) "values" as the reason for the more. A bit more in the way of analysis can be found here.
