Is there a conspiracy against David Davis?

I was originally sceptical of the idea that David Davis is being done down by a conspiracy of old Oxford friends of David Cameron. (Though see this posting and my latest Lib Dem News column - it's a good story.)

But this morning Nick Robinson and the BBC in general were giving extraordinary prominence to the idea that Cameron might do so well this afternoon that the second-placed candidate will not bother going to a ballot of all Tory members.

It makes you think.

There may well be a conspiracy against him. However, I am less convinced that it is a pro-Cameron/toff conspiracy than an anti-Davis/useless tosser conspiracy.
