[next pm] here he should be

Thunderdragon, who currently has some woes of his own, has posted, under Gun Control:
There is no doubt that David Davis has scored a significant goal against Home Secretary Jacqui Smith with this open letter.
Have I not consistently said and continue to do so and I think Iain Dale is right on the money with this one, that the very best talent the Tories have is sitting right beside the current shadow PM?

But no one listens to me.

The man can run rings round the opposition and most certainly the powers that be that I blog against [plus Labour] would not want Davis anywhere near the controls. Better to have a malleable puppet like Blair and Cameron.

As Leo Amery said in 1914 but it is still pertinent today:
For twenty years, he [H.H. Asquith] has held a season ticket on the line of least resistance and has gone wherever the train of events has carried him, lucidly justifying his position at whatever point he has happened to find himself.
David Davis for PM and Boris Johnson for London. That's all.

Replied! ;-)

Yes, it's a good letter. Smith's idea of an "amnesty" is pathetic.

Just read TD's reply and have to say I agree with him that a change of leader is inappropriate at the moment, though Davis has nicer hair! Why am I bothered anyway as I would never vote Tory??

Nicer hair - now that's an angle I hadn't considered.

Nicer hair... aren't we back to style over substance here? ;-)

Nice hair matters these days, it matters.
