Boris and Liam Lead The Fight For A Quick Brexit But Davis Sides With Hammond
It sticks out a mile that Theresa May should sack Philip Hammond! From day one, he has talked down Brexit and done everything, aided by the civil service, to stop a clean Brexit taking place. Now he wants a three year transitional period.
The mystery is, why won’t she act? My theory is that all the reports about May fighting Hammond to protect Brexit are wrong. She thinks the same as he does, and always has.
As for David Davis, forget about the big tough act and all that bilge about the SAS. With a beady eye on the leadership, he has caved. The way he sat on the fence when there was real fighting to be done for the Referendum was a huge red flag. Talking tough was just that. Talk. Now he is allying with Hammond and breezily accepts a two year transition would be just fine! Or more!
Because come leadership time, he wants those Tory Remoaners on his side. And if to achieve that, he has to sell out the will of the British people, that’s p0litics, eh?
Once again, it is left to Boris Johnson to take the brunt of the hard fighting for a clean Brexit on his battle scarred body. And when the fight is won, the vultures will swoop out from behind the sofa and try to divi the political prizes between them.
