The lobby were in for a huge surprise at this morning's Tory briefing.
The entire Tory group (led by Nick Bourne and Cheryl Gillan) packed out the media room too announce that Plaid Cymru AM Mohammad Asghar would be joining their group for the remainder of the Assembly.
He says his feelings jar more and more with his Plaid party who selected him as a list member for the 2007 Assembly Election in South East Wales...
He hasn't told Ieuan Wyn Jones yet.
Expect a day of high drama in Cardiff Bay...
ADD: Believe it or not even though Mohammad Asghar is a list member for Plaid Cymru in South East Wales he is allowed to switch parties.
Once a member is elected, he or she is elected but if he was to stand down Plaid would be allowed to nominate the successor to that seat.
On an interesting note, apparently Nick Ramsey was spotted moving out of his office late last night possibly to make way for their party’s latest addition...
So much for taking back control
