I enjoyed Iain Dale's column in today's Telegraph where he advised David Cameron to appoint William Hague as his deputy. Well, I'll go along with that. I hope I'm not posting anything that will cause me grief - but I believe William to be the most outstanding politician of this era. So Iain, I'm with you on this. But hold on a minute. What's this about your old boss, David Davis.
What really struck me about Iain's article was his suggestion that David could play some sort of John Presscott role for David Cameron. I don't care how you dress this up, it seems to me to be a risky thing to say. David Davis does not look like the sort of man to compare to a buffoon. If I was Iain, I would go back to Rwanda for a few weeks - where he might just be safer.
