The Times, in a backhanded compliment talking about his toughness, calls Mr Davis a vulture.
He has backbone. Indeed, if Mr Willetts is hailed as “two brains”, then it would be apt to refer to Mr Davis as “two spines”.But following a quite clear discussion of his basic principles in the Telegraph, I think this following comment was completely wrong.
This is not helped by his instinct to keep his cards not so much close to his chest as superglued beneath his ribcage.Seeing as the leadership contest has not even started yet, I think he has set out his stall well. If the people at The Times were to read The Telegraph from time to time they would know what I am talking about.
