Gordon Brown and his party's response to David Davis's resignation has been truly pathetic. They can't even "bottle it" with any kind of style and they are dithering about when to announce their cowardly stance. Harriet Harman has just been interviewed on the BBC and refused twice to say whether Labour would stand against Davis in the by-election. What are Labour waiting for? I'll tell you, they are waiting for Gordon Brown to make a decision - I hope they are not holding their breath. Gordon as usual is waiting to see what public opinion is on this matter. I imagine he is pretty sure that he won't put up a candidate, but since becoming PM he has realised that he is absolutely useless at gauging public feeling. Therefore he will wait until the last minute to officially announce that Labour will not face Davis.
Labour are trying to say that this brave move by Davis shows that the Conservative party is split on its terror policy. That's funny because Davis is going to fight his campaign on official Tory terror policies. Dominic Grieve, the man who has replaced Davis on the shadow cabinet holds exactly the same opinions on terror as David, and come to mention it, so does David Cameron. How is that split? It is in fact the Labour party who are split on terror. On the 42 days vote, no less than 36 Labour MPs rebelled. It is quite obvious from reading the press over the last few days that many more would have rebelled, if wasn't for some arm twisting and last minute bribes. As we all know the vote was won only with the help of the DUP, who Brown says were not bribed. Does anyone, anywhere believe that?
David Davis is right. This vote was won in the most dirty and underhanded way. Any Labour supporters reading this should be ashamed of their party today. Gordon Brown has zero respect for democracy. This has been proved once again today by Brown saying he will plough on with the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty even after Ireland have voted NO. Brown does not want to fight Davis over our Liberty because he knows for a fact that he will lose. As the polls indicate, we are sick of the growing security state and we are tired of Gordon Brown and his cabinet.
Well done David Davis. From what I have seen around the Web, you have the support of the Conservative party and the majority of its members.
