David Davis Puts Boot in, Gives Cameron a Flogging,
Mocks “Brokeback Coalition”

The Boot & Flogger in Southwark is the perfect place for a free-marketeer to conspire, since it was until recently the only hostelry in the land that had the right to sell wine without having a licence, thanks to a charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I in 1567.

The FT’s offices are nearby and it was David Davis’ misfortune that an FT hack was there on Thursday to overhear him referring to the “Brokeback Coalition”.

Hardly startling revelations that right-wingers are not overjoyed that Downing Street seems to care more about fifty odd LibDem MPs than two hundred Tory MPs. Just read ConservativeHome and you will see the same sentiments there almost daily…

          I’m afraid Cameron’s performance in America and his concession to review why the UK released the Lybian bomber demonstrates he is lining himself up after politics- the senate and Obama should not question another sovereign state in this way as if we were subserviant to them- they should be politely be told to get stuffed.

            David lost to Dave. Dave wasn’t imposed on the tories by Bob Crowe or Robert Mugabe, he beat David in the election process. More tories supported Dave than supported David. If an embittered David starts rocking the boat, especially during the next two years when austerity measures are being felt and causes a split in the coalition we could see another labour government in. Incredibly they are at 34% in the polls now. You lost David, don’t be another Heath.

            Actually it’s only one Tory lord (Hanningfield). Compared with others, his expenses (eg staying in London overnight) seem strangely reasonable. None of the four have been found guilty yet. If exonerated it would (appear to) take the heat off the 100s of other MPs and ex-MPs. I wonder if that is what this is all about?

            Practices such as ‘flipping’, claiming for items never had (eg a completed mortgage), or claiming for unnecessary items (eg porn films, moats etc) were all excluded by the clause specifying that the expense must be for legitimate parliamentary purposes. There should be hundreds of court cases involving all three parties, not a measly four.

    It’s obvious; Cameron NEEDS the Lib Dems to have a coalition, for political camouflage & burden-sharing (it’s not just us Tories, we’re natural allies). The number of ‘old’ Tories (or those with traditional Tory principles) may exceed the number of Lib Dems, but their views hold no appeal to most Tory voters, let alone those of other parties.

    Although a strong admirer of David Davies’ political integrity, I wonder if giving the FT ammunition & evidence of Tory backbench MP disaffection will help the Tory party.

        The terms ‘right’ and ‘left’ derive from the French Legislative Assembly of 1791. The seating was in the form of a horseshoe; those on the ‘right wing’ were pro-state, those on the ‘left wing’ were pro-individual. Davis is therefore a left winger and Ed Balls, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Hitler are/were right wing.

    I just love the paragraph below written by Dan Hodges – It’s from the same article on Labour Uncut which is Guido’s quote of the day.

    ‘Ed Milliband, meanwhile, has been plunging in knives, daggers, scythes; anything he can get his hands on. David’s copped it, the other leadership rivals have copped it, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, the New Labour Project. Anyone or anything standing in the way of ‘Eddy Kruger’ is put to the sword. So virulent have been his assaults on the policies within the last manifesto that I shudder to think what will happen if he ever catches up with the guy who wrote it.

      Oh yes they did. Cameron got more votes than Blair did in 2005 who then went on to form a Government with a healthy majority. So if the electorate didn’t want Cameron in 2010, they certainly didn’t want Blair in 2005. In fact if the English had their own Government like the Scots, Blair would have been booted out long ago. It’s only thanks to the celtic vote and the biased voting system in Labour’s favour that we’ve had to endure a Labour Government ever.

      Er, two points:
      1) thick as thieves doesn’t post here anymore.
      2) if he did he wouldn’t post retarded comments like the one you are referring to.
      I think that covers everything.

      And it is interesting to note that David Cameron was so busy crawling up the American establishment’s backside that he proved himself to be so very ignorant of the fact that it was this great nation, Great Britain, which stood alone against Hitler’s Nazis and in doing so saved Europe from fascist domination.
      If you ask me, if our brave and selfless airmen had not successfully prevented the Nazi war machine from occupying Great Britain in 1940 the Americans would have done a deal with Hitler. I have no doubt in my mind they would have agreed terms with the Nazis.
      After all, IBM was supplying the Nazis with machines to count and categorise concentration camp victims and the Americans also allowed Nazi propaganda to be shown in New York cinemas in 1941.
      The Americans also had military rallies in American cities headed by soldiers carrying flags bearing the Swastika.
      America was definitely going to do a power sharing deal with Hitler and would have done so if it were not for us winning the Battle of Britain.
      They must have been really pissed of that we successfully defended our shores.
      So, far from us being the junior partner in the relationship with America, this country not only saved Europe from fascism but we also, against the wishes of the Americans, prevented the whole world from being run by the Nazis.
      As far as the Second World War goes, the Americans were just johnny come lately turncoats who waited to see which way the wind was blowing before deciding which side to back.

      Why is he there and who is paying for it? What is the connection with Kirkcaldy?

      Did the African Union invite him before he lost the election so they thought the British PM would be coming? Does his former chum Barry O’Bama know he is dissing him to the Africans?

      Did he arrive late and will he be leaving early?

      I think we should be told.

    4. Tory members voted for Dismal Dave.

      Yes, I think that he wanted to be quoted. There was a journo on t’wireless yesterday who’d heard him and said something to the effect that if David Davis hadn’t shouted anything interesting he would just have been an annoying person whose loud shouting spoiled other people’s drinkeroos and made it difficult for them to hear each other.

      My interpretation is that Cameron is “managing” the populace’s perception of the huge drop in living standards that everyone is going to suffer. Doing without Council services is going to be chic. It will be patriotic to volunteer to empty dustbins. Anything not run by volunteers will simply disappear. Etc etc. And it was going to happen anything, thanks to NuLabour’s criminal mismanagement.

This is the *other* only hostelry in the land that had the right to sell wine without having a licence, thanks to a charter. I know because I saw a copy of it on the wall over 30 years ago.

    Don Quixote Davis needs to wake up and smell the coffee, instead of tilting at windmills. In case he was asleep on election night, the electorate did not give the Tory party an unconditional mandate to govern. Compromises have to be made and the most important issue is to bring down ditherer Brown’s deficit which he hung round all our necks before departing to Africa.

    Davis clearly feels aggrieved at being a loser again but breaking the coalition now and calling a fresh election is hugely irresponsible and smacks of putting his own careerist interests in front of those of the rest of us.
