David Davis.

I've been trawling the web this afternoon catching up on the news and reading pages after pages of David Davis and why it's a fools errand he is running etc.

Personally I think he has done the right thing for himself.

1) Labour won't put up a candidate. They can't afford it and it will give the plebs another chance to smack them in the face. I'll miss that.
2) Davis won't turn to the Libertarian Party either. Jeez, it's taken him this long to realise he is a liberal. No such luck. He may have hit his personal limit but it's not because he is a converted libertarian. If Davis was to be a Libertarian candidate he would be a big fish in a very much smaller pool and pretty powerless. In the Tories he will still wield a lot of power even before the next election. Never mind the Libertarian Parties stance on salary and expenses.
3) The Tories will let him stand as their man. They won't contest him themselves.
4) Other parties have already said they will not stand.

He is likely to just walk in without any battle at all.

I think this will give him the standing to take on Cameron who we already know is just as useless as the current bunch in power. His stand must have Cameron panicking again and when, Sorry if, he is reelected Cameron won't have the balls to leave him out of the shadow cabinet as he will campaign actively against him from the back benches. Hell, even while he is in the shadow cabinet he will make statements that will change Tory policy and have the whole of the UK cheering.

Imo. Davis has made the best move for himself for a long time and I think he will be the leader of the Tories when they go into the next election. Watch the poll ratings when Cameron is removed.

After yesterdays farce of democracy in action there are two things today that have made it up.

The tide is changing Ladies and Gentlemen. About time too.

So much more optimistic than my effort on my blog.

Note to self, "Stop being such a miserable bugger, and look on the bright side."

Bag, but Davis never even hinted that he would stand as anything else other than a Conservative candidate.

This "stunt" as Gordon (who himself rhymes with "stunt")keeps this odious legislation in the headlines.

The press don't know (haven't been told by No 10) how to react and are calling it "divisive" and the Tory Party is "in chaos".

Not so, this has been cleverly orchestrated and has the blessing of Dave and the shadow front bench. Look how quickly Cleggover came out and said they would not contest the election. The LimpDems know that Liebour is a busted flush and are steeling themselves for either a "hung parliament" (not very likely) or to be the official opposition (quite possible if Gordon remains in charge).

Tend to agree, Bag.

John, It is just an opinion I have been wrong before. Just look at the ex-wife.

Henry, Davis didn't say that as far as I know. I read at Dks site that he should join the Libertarian Party. My view is he may be taking a stance at his line but he is far from the Libertarian line.

James, So do I funny enough. Hope Welshcakes is not spoiling you too much although it sounds like she is.

Welshcakes, When you finally get fed up with James I could get used to the life of luxury and coddling he is getting now. :)
