Bloggers For Davis 37

Dan Paterson is any extremely active BFD. Over at Make Socialism History he says:

"I trust David Davis; he answers his questions in full detail and understands the workings of Government. Mr Davis has been in Parliament since 1987 and as such has been there significantly longer than Mr Cameron. He understands what is required of the party over the next few years; he understands that what we do NOT need is spin and glossy coated politics. I believe David Davis would...tell some hard truths, while bringing a spirit of trust back to politics. This is essential as ourselves and the Labour party have managed to lose the respect of the British public almost entirely over the past ten years and if we do not...remedy this, the situation will be irrepairable."

It is a good point. Unlike those- such as Polly Toynbee- who believe British democracy would be best served by the Tories becoming a clone of New Labour, we believe healthy democracy depends on electors having real choice. And that ought to include the choice of political style.
