David Davis is either a bloody fool or a genius.

It isn't often that you think someone may have been inspired by John Major into doing something, but my first reaction was that David Davis's actions and statements today were very reminiscent of June 1995 when Major tried to beat the bastards at their own game. In the end though it provided nothing more that a miniscule respite and we all know what was unleashed upon us in 1997.

With a 5,116 vote majority I would think the result, even as he runs on a platform that differs from the general public's opinion, shouldn't be much in dispute; especially if the rumoured the pact with Clegg is real. So is this actually going to achieve anything or is it just a colossal waste of everyone's time and money (while he maybe campaigning with his own money, the taxpayers of his constituency and proportionately the rest of us pay for the process)?

One nice little point about this is that he will be ousting Blair as he is currently "Steward and Bailiff of the Three Hundreds of Chiltern" and I assume, that as it is the commonest "office of profit under the crown" used when an MP wants to "resign", it will be Mr Davis's way out.

Is it the commoner? I thought they alternated.

You are quite correct, I should have been more thorough in checking my
assumptions were true.
Boris is the Crown Steward of the Manor of Northstead and David Davis
will succeed TB at Chiltern.

From the last three years, I have a goal to change the structure of my industrial unit. I have planned a lot of things about it, now I have no any option for this building structure. I want to renovate many parts of this unit. I want to put new looks in my building, but I don’t have ideas about any company. This has created a hard time for me. It can be an annoying problem for me. So, I am looking for Pre Engineered Building Manufacturers for the safe building solutions. Can anyone help me for suggesting a reliable name for Pre-engineered building solutions?
