Oh, bold certainly. It’ll get a lot of attention and the bigger a hammering the government gets over this 42-days nonsense, the better.
But brave? I don’t know. If you look at the last General Election results in Haltemprice and Howden in 2005 (Davis won by 5,000) and consider that the Lib Dems aren’t even going to field a candidate, the chances of Davis not being re-elected are around 0.
