Phillip Davies is the MP for for Shipley in West Yorkshire.
He is currently under investigation for his links with the gambling industry, something for which he has previously apologised to Parliament.
Davies has been dubbed “the master of filibuster” for his attempts to block legislation by talking at length, particularly when private members’ bills under the Ten Minute Rule are debated
When asked by a journalist whether his tactics were underhand, Davies said:
“When I first got elected to Parliament my mentor was Eric Forth [the former Tory MP] and he really was the past master of talking out bills on a Friday. He did it for fun and he was brilliant at it”
Over this past week or so it has dawned on me that what we call our ‘establishment’ are culpable of outright incitement of the people. Both the political and judicial class are guilty of this.
