A British Rothbardian instance of left and right?
Okay, as a Hoppeian I believe that democracy is a busted crock and ought to disappear as soon as possible down the toilet bowl of history, before the entire world is drowned in worthless paper money, Bilderberger fascism, capital destruction, and decivilising stone age reversions, all topped off with a heady cocktail of war on terror nuclear fallout. However, when the Westminster village hoi polloi criticize a man for daring to nail his colours to a principle, I become more convinced than ever that the end of democracy needs to occur sooner rather than later.
So good luck David Davis, in your attempt to show up Gordon Brown for the pusillanimous tyrant that he is, by opposing his plans to lock innocent people up for six weeks without bothering to inform them on what grounds.
But better even than that, good luck Bob Marshall Andrews, socialist maverick, for daring Brown to sack you for supporting the Tory David Davis. It would seem the Labour Party's George Orwell crowd is still just about alive and kicking. Good luck to 'em.
