Who will lead the Conservative party?

Well, David Davies will probably be the victor, as he's been scheming long enough, and one imagines that his Liberal Democrat challenger last night was more of an obstacle than Liam Fox or anyone else who may want the job.

That would be fantastic news, as David Davies seems set to continue the Tory Party's march into obscurity and the far-right. But aside from that, a strong Davies candidacy is notable for its development out of nothing. Davies has played his game consumately well, and his entrance to the top field of Tories is quite remarkable, given his obscurity before his "modern Conservatives" campaign in 2001.
