Dan Hannan (lefties can stop reading now as I'm sure you'll have written your own script from this point onwards) has written an interesting piece about his public image and the way the media treat him.
Dan and Douglas Carswell have written a book called The Plan, which sets out a number of ideas for decentralisation, localism and radican redistribution of political power away from the Executive. It's well worth a read.
The direction that the Government is taking matches that set out in The Plan, perhaps not as fast or a radical as the book's proposals but Governments really move as quickly as anyone would like. Funny then that the BBC just assumed that Dan would be a frothing at the mouth talking head to slate the coalition in general and David Cameron in particular.
David Cameron has made a commitment to driving power back to people and communities rather than institutions and politicians this is something Dan agrees with, I also happen to think that this is not only a good idea but something which has an inevitability about it. Like Disreali did with the extention of the franchise, if it is going to happen anyway you might as well help it along on its way.
