David Davis & fixed terms

Okay, it’s late and perhaps I’m just too tired for my brain to function properly, but this is something I’m really struggling to get my head around:

How do bloggers who support the introduction of fixed-term Parliaments square that with their support for Davis’ decision to trigger a by-election in protest at a single issue that’s already been passed through the Commons?

If you believe the date we hold elections shouldn’t be determined by political circumstances (which I agree with, by the way), it seems inconsistent to support someone’s desire to call an election when it is motivated entirely by political circumstances.

Answers on a postcard, etc etc.
