FAQ 4c. Why is it important who approached whom?
Grewal insists that the Liberals approached him. The Liberals insist the opposite. Why does it matter?
The question is important for both sides' spin of the affair. Grewal has claimed that he never intended to change parties and that he'd only pretended to be interested in changing parties after the Liberals had asked him to do so. That story would be much more difficult to accept if he was the one who asked to join the Liberals.
The Liberals, on the other hand, see it as much less embarrasing to them if they are perceived to have been reacting to Grewals' offer rather than making one of their own.
