Two cheers for Philip Davies MP
This exchange took place this morning while MPs debated whether there should be a register of professional lobbyists, something the government favours. “Just because it is the Government’s proposal, that does not make it a good one,” said the Tory MP, Philip Davies.
To which a Labour MP, Thomas Docherty, retorted: “That’s your career over, then.”
I’m not sure Philip Davies ever had a ministerial career anyway. He is an eccentric right winger, but at least he takes the trouble to be there on a Friday morning, and he is not lobby fodder.
