David Davis resigns

Post by Chi_Rup » Sun Jul 08, 2018 10:47 pm

No more Brexit Secretary, head of Department for Leaving the EU. How will we Brexit now?

Let’s remember the man with this quote from a recent newspaper profile:
“I solicited reminiscences of David Davis’s time in the SAS (territorial). When he was required to co-ordinate an ambush, he opted to position his men on either side of the road so that, had the exercise been real, the soldiers would have opened fire on each other.” (Marina Hyde)

If David Davis has resigned; this is a precarious moment for May. If there are several ministerial resignations she’s probably toast.

Letter. Clear challenge to May. If others resign, she’s gone.

A great pity he didn't resign at Chequers and do the walk of shame up the drive to get a taxi. (Having, as warned, lost the use of his ministerial car.)

The World Cup will distract the bulk of Leavers while all this is going on. I think May will survive.

Yes, I’m sure that the troops under his command would have stayed quiet about this.

Would someone explain to me what realistic arguments do the hard Brexiters (Boris Johnson & co) still hold to object a soft Brexit (=do whatever to keep 'most' free trade on goods and services with EU (maybe with some exceptions such as agriculture sector), which means generally respecting the 4 freedoms of EU?

The only logical argument I can find is Johnson fucking with May and once she is gone and he becomes PM, he will turn around and arrange a soft Brexit.

No need to assume conspiracy- it is quite clear that the Civil Service has captured the PM.

Madness to have a Remainer driving Brexit.
