Davis Bashes Boris

HOT on the heels of a successful two days with Merkel and Macron, leading Brexiteers are already throwing spanner’s in the works.

They are led by former Brexit Secretary David Davis who warmed that he might not support a new exit deal if it only succeeds in stripping out the Northern Ireland backstop.

Mr. Davis told TBG - "I’d argue for contingency on the money."

"I’d argue for tighter limits, timetable limits, sunset clauses on ECJ and things like that."

“I’d have a small shopping list. “

"It wouldn’t be a ridiculous one, but one I think that any serious European Parliament and any European Council that wants a deal could go with.2

"If I were doing this for Boris, I would be insistent that they make the bill - the £39 billion, the second half of it - contingent on progress on the future economic partnership."

Meanwhile, Tory Remainers led by Philip Hammond are said to be preparing to hold their own talks with Brussels in bid to reach agreement on another Article 50 extension.

Hammond is said to have retained extensive contacts book of European leaders & ministers from his time as Chancellor.

TBG can’t help thinking that Hammond May be breaching GDPR laws from when he was Chancellor too?
