turncoat (noun) one who changes from one political party to another, from one religion to another.
A turncoat is a person who has no permanent loyalty to any one party or one group. They change parties according to their convenience and for selfish reasons without any principles or convictions.
- A turncoat changes his parties as easily as he changes his coats. All that he cares about is power, position and money. Whichever party gives him them he joins that party.
- No one expected that he would change his party overnight. He received a huge amount of money and the promise of a position from the other party and he changed over immediately.
