I’m A Davis Campaigner…

Guido was at a wonk-fest dinner Saturday night (the after dinner speaker was an amusing Stephen Pollard), talk around the table was how wonks from big-government Demos to the tax-cutting Reform were going to re-align themselves towards Cameron. On the right, pictures of Davis were being deleted from their websites, former Davis campaign volunteers had found pressing commitments back at the office, ideological pontoon bridges were being rapidly erected towards Cameron.

So many MPs have publicly dumped their support for Davis its embarrassing, although entirely in keeping with Tory tradition. One case intrigues Guido: who was the Davis campaign team MP who told Denis MacShane in Brussels when asked why he wasn’t back in Westminster campaigning for Basher, that “there was no point in flogging a dead horse”? (A tale recounted gleefully to Andrew Marr).

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.”
