David Davis speech

Well it was a typical Laura Norder-type speech, tough, tough and tougher. War on Drugs guff, Prison Works (© MH circa 1995), bloody muggers, throw away the key etc. It should go down well with the core voter. Blunkett and Davis are going to try and out do each other in authoritarianism. He did not make a coded pitch (that I heard) for the top job.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
