The 2005 UK General Election Blog reports that Ladbrokes have Davis and Letwin down as the Tories most likely to lose their seats on May 5. Not so much a clinical decapitation strategy as the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I've always has Davis down as the kind of no-nonsense politician who appeals to that most militant variant of Daily Mail reader who spends every weekend in B+Q and fantasises about Charlie Dimmock, but a Tory moderniser recently tried to convince me that Davis has a socially liberal side and he's a leader they could do business under. The evidence for this was Davis giving houseroom to a scandal-hit gay Tory once.

Someone better tell the people who run the Ditch Davis! site that's sprung up then, as they list one of the reasons to defenestrate the Shadow Home Secretary as him being "opposed to equality for homosexuals: he voted against the abolition of Section 28 and equalising the age of consent". Obviously homosexuality is only permissible for Top Tories and not the rest of society in his worldview.
