Alan B'Stard's successor as MP for Haltemprice has been returned with a reduced majority on a lowish turnout.
Is this a victory for Davis' campaign for liberty or just the predictable outcome in a safe Tory seat uncontested by any other major party? I do hope that the £100k cost of the election from the public purse is enough for DD's ego. Just think, within two years, he must have had the expectation of being Home Secretary in a Cameroon government (let's just live in Toryworld for a moment, where that is the dream) and the opportunity to put into practice his libertarian ideals. Instead, unless Cameron relents and puts him back into his old job - which seems unlikely at the moment - DD can look forward to being on the back benches.
