Keeping It Clean

Something all of us want to see is a good clean fight. It's in nobody's interest- other that is, than our political opponents and the media- to condone biting and gouging.

So we should all welcome DD's self-denying ordinance, announced on R4 Today, that he will answer no more questions about drugs:

"I'm Shadow Home Secretary; in the last few weeks I've been asked questions about the direction of drugs policy, which have then been written up, rather mischievously I must say, as an attack on David. So for the next six weeks, I'm not going to answer any question on drugs- policy or otherwise- because I'm simply not going to have this debate dominated by this issue."

Quite right.
