David Davis and the strange people who have supported him.

David Davis who opposes 42 day detention for terror suspects in the UK.

It seems that David Davis has some rather 'dodgy' supporters.

This may, or may not, be suspicious.

pentos left a comment on our post "Victory for David Davis against the Fascists":

David Davis "has been strongly supported by Ed Vaizey MP, Michael Gove MP and Colonel Tim Collins, who are all original signatories to the Statement of Principles of the Henry Jackson Society, a Neoconservative, 'think tank', set up in Britain in 2005 and named after the US senator, Henry 'Scoop' Jackson, one of the icons of the Neocon movement in the United States that has controlled the Bush administration since it came to power and orchestrated the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the war on terror in general.

"International patrons of the Henry Jackson Society include Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Robert Kagan and former CIA director, James Woolsey, all of whom were in the forefront of the instigation of the war on terror through their Neocon 'think tank', the Project for the New American Century, whose key members include Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz.

"Indeed, Kristol and Kagan were co-founders of the Project for the New American Century.

"The Henry Jackson Society is Britain's version of the same Project for the New American Century. Another of the original signatories to the Henry Jackson Society is Sir Richard Dearlove who was head of MI6 at the time of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the launch of the war on terror.

"Davis himself has been paid to speak by the American Enterprise Institute, the sister organisation of the Project for the New American Century, and the Neocon 'think tank', the Hudson Institute.

"He also invited Patrick Mercer MP to support his by-election campaign, yet Mercer has connections to private security firms and companies that produce and sell the very Big Brother surveillance and control technology that Davis is complaining about."

It is said by some that Patrick Mercer is a consultant for a private army security organization and works and travels abroad on fact finding missions for the same Big Brother type of organizations that Davis is supposedly opposed to.

Furthermore Patrick Mercer connected to such organizations supporting a challenged to Big Brother simply put the kibosh on any belief that Davis is entirely sincere.
