Douglas CarswellDan Hannan went viral and wowed the YouTube generation with his speech.  For a moment he seemed to have eclipsed Douglas Carswell, who was with Hannan the co-author of The Plan.  In the short time Carswell has been in parliament he has made some impact with his coherent critique of the political status quo.  He is independently minded and often described as a maverick; he has already managed to upset the Conservative Party establishment, turn down a PPS job offer designed to stifle him, upset the powerful defence industry lobby and break with parliamentary convention by championing the ousting of a disgraced Speaker.  Not bad work.
