DD may wait in vain

David Davis has apparently decided to delay his much-heralded resignation from the Commons until after Prime Minister’s Questions today. Does that mean he intends to ask a question from the back benches? He won’t be on the order paper, so if that’s his intention he will have to bob up and down to try to catch the Speaker’s eye. And there’s no guarantee that Michael Martin will call him; DD has no more “right” to be called than any other backbencher, whatever the nature of his rather bizarre personal crusade he announced last week.

I’ve been invited by blushing newly-wed Iain Dale to be interviewed for his blog immediately afterwards, so will no doubt be offered an opportunity to comment further on DD’s last appearance in the chamber before the entirely pointless and unnecessary Haltemprice and Howden by-election gets underway.
