D D Day
It's David Davis Day. Just off to Peterborough to pick him up. David is my best friend in politics so I'm glad we have a good turnout at the two events we have organised today. I think he's doing a terrific job as Shadow Home Secretary. As many people know, had he run for the leadership I would have been on his campaign team. Indeed, if you remember his announcement outside the House of Commons when he said he would stand aside for Michael Howard I was standing behind him looking like an undertaker! But he made the right decision both for himself and the Party. In many ways that single decision helped unite the Party in a way we haven't seen for two decades. I'm looking forward to the day ahead!
