Labour MPs start to back Davis
In an amazing twist to the saga of David Davis' resignation and the forthcoming by-election for his seat, the Labour MP Bob Marshall-Andrews has pledged his support to Davis and will campaign for him.

In a further move that is guaranteed to wipe the smirk of the faces of Nu-Labour creatures, the newly ennobled former head of MI5, Eliza Manningham-Buller, has also pledged to oppose the 42 day detention law when it reached the House of Lords.

With an eye to bolstering his civil libertarian platform in general, Davis yesterday pledged to support the removal of anyone found to be innocent of a crime from the DNA database. He also pledged to work for tougher laws to control the ever increasing use of CCTV cameras.

Nu-Labour for its part now seems to be seriously considering running a stooge candidate for the seat. John Smeaton the Glasgow Airport baggage handler who helped foil a terrorist plot is a name that is being bandied around.

Given the kicking that one blogger got when he floated this idea, that fact that Nu-Labour is even thinking about this shows just how desperate they are.

I would suggest to Luke that if he's so keen on 42 days why doesn't he go and fight the by-election?

I don't think that he is keen, in the sense that this is something that he believes in.

What he is doing is looking around for policies that don't involve raising tax on the middle class to toss to the working class as table scraps.

Fuck, as they say, to that.
