Davies has been informed of this prestigious appointment and, judging by his reply, I have a sneaking suspicion that it is much appreciated.
Dear RichardI think I can say, with confidence, that more MPs like Davies would be much appreciated by readers of this blog, and that if he could find time to kick Kevin Barron in the shins - very hard - at some point in the near future, that would be much appreciated too.
Thank you very much indeed for your extremely kind email which is much appreciated and for your supportive comments which are much appreciated.
UPDATE: Davies, on being informed of his investiture, was understandably overwhelmed.
Thanks Richard... he gushed.
