Our Next Home Secretary?

Sadly not, but Conservative MP David Davies (not to be confused with David Davis), deserves a round of applause:

David Davies said black police representatives in London had behaved worse than the apartheid regime in South Africa by urging ethnic minorities not to join the Metropolitan Police force.

In a speech to the National Black Police Association annual conference, he also slammed the organisation for not allowing white people interested in fighting racism to become full members.

His comments sparked an angry reaction from delegates. Up to a dozen walked out in protest and others slow-handclapped the MP for Monmouth, who was likened to a BNP extremist.

I had assumed the BNP would support the NBPA's campaign to keep ethnic minorities out of the police.

Agreed. The other David Davies seems pretty sensible. Ta for link.

Get confusing, these names.

It's not impossible that they simply booked the wrong David Davi(e)s

That must happen from time to time with so many David Davi(e)ses about.

They could have got Dickie Davies.

@ Yaffle, according to this morning's Metro, they did in fact book the wrong DD!
