Hands off! Boris Johnson and David Davis are about to play hardball

As May starts her negotiations over Brexit, she might recall Thatcher’s reminiscences in 1993 about her own talks with Brussels, in which she said: “There’s not a strand of equity and fairness in Europe; they’re out to get as much as they can. So I tackled it on that basis.”  reported the Sunday Times.Boris Johnson and David Davis can both be exceptionally charming,  but when necessary,  that’s the front.  Underneath they are prepared to beat the crap out of any EU chief or Remoaner who pushes his luck.

In Sunday Times, Dominic Lawson reproaches “Sergeant Major” May

A strange situation now exists whereby Mrs. May, who refused to fight for her beliefs in the EU Referendum. appointed three Brexit Ministers, to execute the will of the people, but refuses to allow them to speak frankly  on Brexit.borismaynegsPhillip Hammond, a Remainer, is allowed to say what he likes, but David Davis and Boris Johnson, who risked his entire career to fight for the rights of ordinary people, are continually “slapped down!” Dominic Lawson commented tartly “Perhaps Mrs May was trying to let them know that, Wellington-style, she expected her cabinet to be as obedient as the ranks should be to their commanding officer.” Continue reading

Daily Telegraph refutes Sunday Times’ scaremongering about Brexit delay

A negative article in yesterday’s Sunday Times, saying that Whitehall is not ready for Brexit talks and Britain could remain in EU until the end of 2019 triggered a torrent of scaremongering tweets from Remainers, desperate to reverse the Leave decision.borisfox2The Sunday Times also warned:  ” Whitehall is in chaos as David Davis and Liam Fox struggle to set up new departments responsible for Brexit.
