Tamworth Manifesto

Watching Question Time last night Tony McNulty talked of David Davies resignation, and the “Tamworth Manifesto” he’ll be using to re-stand. He also said he’d been told not to use that phrase because nobody would know what it meant. So I looked it up on Wikipedia and it relates to having to re-stand for election – it also happens to be the a key founding document of the modern Conservative party. Although this particular Davies has denied that this is his Clapham Common (trite link i know!, “moment of madness”) I’m not sure he’s made it clear why he’s doing this or how it will prove anything… and it’s not clear how it will pan out

So there you go – a history lesson for me. If you want to know more on the Tamworth Manifesto click here.
