Davids, Davids, Everywhere 17 April 2007

Posted by David in Conservatives.

It seems that if you don’t know what someone’s called, it’s a good bet to call them David, especially if they’re Tories. Does being called David make you more likely to be a Tory, unless you’re the son of communist academic and surname’s Milliband? I’m a David. The party leader is a David. The Shadow Home Secretary is a David, almost twice (Davis is almost there). He has a near namesake, David Davies MP, which really confuses the tabloids (especially as Davies talks often about law and order issues). It turns out that in total there are 17 David Conservative MP’s, if my count is correct. And now Nobel Prize winning David Trimble has joined the Conservative David benches, giving a good weight to the party in general but particularly its efforts in Northern Ireland. It’s not often Nobel Prize winners join.
