So, nothing new there you may well say.
My morning paper tells me that Broon has won a pointless victory over the bizarre 42-day-detention stuff. He had to buy off the Ulstermen to do this, and the Lords will veto it, and he is only doing it for cheap popularity, and he will fail, and it will all be useless. If he actually wants to increase our security, perhaps he might stop his people leaving “intelligence” documents on the train.
But in a stunning bid to make Broon look competent by competitive incompetence, Tory David Davis has decided to resign and fight a by-election errrm, for some reason or another. The Grauniad describes it as Davis’s move – to “take a stand” on what he said was the “relentless erosion” of freedoms by the government. Quite how it helps, I’m really not sure, and from the look of it not even the Tories are pretending to understand what he is on about. And why he triggered on 42 I don’t know – our current 28 is already madness.
