Stunt and a farce?
EDITORIAL BY TEGO:
So Gormless Brown thinks that David Davis stepping down as Shadow Home Secretary and MP for Haltemprice and Howden is a "Stunt that has become a farce". It's clearly a "Stunt" and as far as I can see it's done its job, people are talking about the 42 days and they're talking about David Davis as a man of principle. Gormless also claims that David Davis is splitting his party, which I think shows exactly why Mr Brown is such a terrible leader, Davis had this to say "We're a party not a regiment and we're in politics hopefully, and virtually in all cases, for reasons of principle." I personally doubt that any politician is in politics for reasons of principle at this point, be they Liberal Democrats, Labour or Conservatives but while some in the "Political elite" media are calling David Davis' actions farcical I see them as the only hope British people can have in our political system. As far as I'm concerned you can sit on either side of the fence, you can allow yourself to be scared into thinking the Police need 42 days or you can be rational and see the law for what it is, a blatant disregard for civil liberties, but you can not deny that David Davis is doing something he believes in and something that needs to be done; the country needs to have a say in this, whether it's only Haltemprice and Howden, it will be more people than Labour are currently allowing to decide whether or not our freedom is destroyed. I personally don't see how this affair can reflect badly on David Davis or his party, David Cameron has already said that he's going to campaign for Davis if Labour nominate a candidate to run against him (of course they won't because they're scared).
I might be biased though as David Davis appears to be the only modern working class politician with any profile these days and of course My MP voted against the changes.
