Good on Ben Brogan for offering former MP David Davis some much-needed publicity. DD has been desperately writing green ink letters to the prime minister in the hope that he can remind the country of the by-election which is, despite appearances, happening in Haltemprice and Howden. According to DD, the PM has issued a gagging order on all Labour MPs warning them against engaging with the former Shadow Home Secretary on the issue of 42 days, etc. Guess I didn’t get the memo.
How intensely self-important do you have to be to imagine that your candidacy in an unnecessary and pointless by-election warrants such measures?
