While the David Davis stunt-election-cum-future-leadership-challenge-marker tying some lefties in knots as to whether or not they should support him (the answer to me is quite obviously is NO), I've got to say my Rightie-of-choice tonight is Peter Oborne. I've just watched his Dispatches programme 'It shouldn't happen to a muslim' and I felt like giving the bloke a round of applause at the end of it.
With plenty of Righties talking themselves into believing challenging Islamic extremism is somehow comparable with WWII or the Cold War, here was a conservative finding a completely different story. He argued that the muslims were being unfairly characterised as extremists, leading to tensions in local communities and even violent attacks. Rather than wartime analogies, the comparison he drew was with earlier examples of us stigmatising minority groups, and he was particularly scathing about media coverage of muslims.
And what was best of all about it was that he didn't lessen the impact of his message by diluting it with needless caveats and qualifications (we don't need to preface every discussion about muslims by restating our opposition to religious extremism). This was a forceful attack on intolerance and ignorance and those that exacerbate the problem. I diagree with him about a lot, but on this he was absolutely spot on.
