Here’s his view on David Davis:
The question is, what should us liberal-minded folk do? We didnâ€™t pick this fight or choose Davis to be our champion, but can we really afford to sit back and watch? Iâ€™ve lost count of the number of blog posts and facebook groups Iâ€™ve skimmed past denouncing Davis for being a hypocrite on the issue of civil liberties. That may be so, but what is more hypocritical? A hang â€˜em, flog â€˜em politician standing up for fundamental civil liberties or a smart arse who claims to care about the drip-drip erosion of our rights while sitting on the fence because the one person taking a stand doesnâ€™t pass a â€œpurityâ€ test.
I’m very attracted to this view. But I think in order to bring over the lefties in general, something else will be required James. Though, I do share your concern too.
