Who is David Davis’s web cheer-leader attacking today?
Punters wanting to find out which contender members of the Davis Davis team consider to be the greatest current threat should go to the blog of the Shadow Home Secretary’s internet cheer-leader and the comments on this site by the man behind it and who uses the alias Wat Tyler – of Peasant’s Revolt fame.
For almost every day visitors to his site are treated to fierce, biting and usually amusing attacks on the contender, one assumes, who is seen as the biggest current threat – after all you don’t kick a dead dog. In addition “Wat Tyler” adds considerably to the colour of PB.C’s discussion forms with regular “revelations”.
Judging by the recent focus on Ken Clarke then the current 11/1 might be worth a punt.
Wat is watching the betting very closely and asked recently where I was getting information on the “last price traded” on the Betfair betting exchange. So for Wat and others all you need to do is to go into the Betfair trading screen and click the name of the contender you want information on. Up comes a pop-up with lots of data on the betting including the “last price matched” which we think is a good guide to market movements.
And the real Wat Tyler? Well in 1381 he had, to say the least, a sticky end as this contemporary account records. Even David Davis’s worst enemies would not wish that on him – surely not?
