Shadow Home Secretary, David Davis said something a bit weird on Thursday night’s BBC’s QuestionTime. When challenged by David ‘Dullsville’ Dimbleby that at one stage, a few years ago, he’d been fully committed to a Parliament for England - Davis said he had only done it to publicise the ‘cause’.
He expanded by saying the only reason he supported an English Parliament in the first place was to raise the issue to a wider public. He apparently didn’t actually believe that an English Parliament was necessary or desirable – he merely called for it so the ‘better’ solution of EvoEL would be adopted by the Tories.
I’ve heard some tall stories by politicians over the years, but for God’s sake, do they think we are that thick?
They obviously do.
