Toasted tory

James Kirkup writing in the Scotsman voices similar sentiments to my post here.
NO MATTER how long it is postponed or how dignified a send-off is arranged, Conservative MPs are currently united in one belief: Michael Howard is toast. Whether it is in the summer, at the autumn conference, or early in 2006 before the referendum on the European Constitution, the Conservatives will soon need a new chief.

The top candidates appear to be David Davis, Liam Fox and perhaps even a return for William Hague.

It's hard to imagine anyone other than David Davis as Prime Minister. And he opposes ID cards. The campaign starts here.
