Time To Regroup

"He which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us."
(Henry V, Act IV, iii)

After some prompting, we agreed it was time to prune our Bloggers For Davis list. Even we can see that some of those who originally flocked to the colours have since scarpered.

We thought about initiating the List Of Shame. But this is a time to get serious, not petty-minded. So we've quietly put a few crowns in a few purses. And actually, just like DD's vote among MPs, there's been far less attrition than those doomsayer guys might have predicted.

The one real sadness is that in all conscience we've had to drop our old friend Tom Watson, Labour MP for West Bromwich East. Despite his encouraging post back in the summer, counting him as one of us was probably a bit like Henry V counting the Duke of Orleans as one of his.

We'll be adding new Bloggers For Davis over coming days.

PS If I've included anyone in error, please let me know.
