Guido has, as always, escaped this weekend’s fires of protestant bigotry to bring news of another prisoner of conscience. David Willet’s absence from the media is noticeable. He is despairing of the core votes strategy being pursued by Team Davis. Two Brains reckons it’s brainless to try to predict economic growth* in ten years time and make tax policy on that basis.
Basher’s campaign have imprisoned him, saying that his endorsement is on the printed campaign material – so he can’t back out now. Willets instead has decided to keep his counsel and drop out of active campaigning. Guido says Free The Willets One!
*Basher was 40 minutes late for Question Time in Nottingham, delaying filming. How is a man who is unable to forsee traffic delays able to predict GDP growth in ten years time?
