David Davis

So you may have seen on the news today that David Davis will launch his bid for the Conservative leadership with a visit to Warwick.

As well as a press conference, he'll also be in the studio for a special interview with RaW, the radio station he helped create, back in the day.

Listen in from 1.30pm and we'll be asking him why he wants to be Tory leader, and asking whether he's got any chance of beating David Cameron.

If you've got any burning – and serious – questions you want to ask, leave them as a comment and we'll see if we've got time to ask them.

And there'll be more from David on tomorrow's 5pm RaW News bulletin.

Listen on 1251AM or online at
