Fourteen defections in 11 weeks

We're going to need a bigger conference hall
We've been asked a few times how many defections UKIP has had this year and how many are from parties other than the Tories so I've gone back through the last 11 weeks of posts to pull out some statistics.

As far as we are aware there have been 14 defections this year of which 11 were from the Conservatives, 1 from the Lib Dems, 1 independent and one from a non-LibLabCon party.  That's an average of 1.27 defections per week so far in 2013.
