‘Please notice me’ plea from DD

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?

  1. Poor old David “I was brought up in a council house you know” Davis clearly suffers from the regrettably rather-too-common-in-the-21st-century “look at me, look at me” affliction. But he’s chosen the wrong profession; people only really notice interesting and/or effective politicians. As his “I want to be your leader” speech to his conference clearly demonstrated, he is neither. Perhaps he should go on Big Brother, I’m told it did wonders for GG…

    Tom, I disagree with your line…

    It should be fairly clear to even those subject to a three line Whip, that the case was never made for 42 days.

    DD might be loving this, but please don’t knock him for his ingenuity in keeping 42 days and the wider liberty debate in the public eye.

    As for the claim of the by-election being a waste of money…
