A comment from my elusive colleague, Christopher Montgomery, on Julian Lewis:

Julian is a very starnge cove, but essentailly a decent, and very hard working guy. Duncan Smith made him (and his nominal front bench rank is junior whip) the party's 'integrity and standards' bod, solely because he had to give him some pat on the back for all the stuff he did during the leadership election.

As to Julian's politics, as Emmanuel says, he is a frenetic, albeit sincere, stooge of America, and a determined partisan of Israel. I don't agree with him on any of that, but give him his due: he is entirely honest and open about his opinions, and he tries to advance his arguments on the basis of logic. All balls, but there we are.

There are other comments on here, and if you don't like what is written, why not join in?
