If Davis doesn’t resign now, EU will know it can call him on every bluff

Comment

Damian Green’s sacking today by Theresa May – or her asking him to resign, to be exact – puts Brexit Secretary David Davis in a serious quandary.

Davis threatened to resign if Green was sacked:

Now Green is gone – but if Davis does not resign, he will be sending the clearest possible message to the EU: “ignore everything I say – I’m full of bluff and bluster but I won’t back it up”.

Author Alex Nunns called it correctly on Twitter:

As with the reality that May sacked Green out of weakness, not strength, you’re unlikely to find this perspective in the ‘MSM’.

And of course, if David does step down, May is weaker still – perhaps the BBC will say it’s a sign of Britain’s strength in the Brexit negotiations that we don’t really need a Brexit Secretary..

  4. Come on Davis lets hear it then …….. what … not resigning!!! Well what does one expect of a Tory TURD , full of shite and no substance

  5. Alex Nunns was also absolutly right about what the MSM’s take on Green’s departure would be. The BBC’s Today programme has lost no time this morning to tell the nation that it actually re-asserts May’s authority as PM.
    I have never known of any UK Government to be in such a state of disarray with such massively hight stakes at risk as this one . Over the years there have been plenty that have come close but May’s is a shambles on every aspect of governmental administration and policy. Here’s another very obvious wheel falling off and what do the Beeb say?
    More “False News” from aunty they need to give their collective heads a good shake.

  7. I had a bet with myself that D Davis wouldn’t resign. He’s a windbag of the first order. There’s probably an annual “Best negotiator” Award. Is there a “Worst negotiator” one too?

  8. YOUR TURD NOW DAVIES, PASS IT ON TO YOUR RIGHT ON THE FRONT BENCH!
    BEFORE YOU F-OFF WITH YOUR GOOD BUDDY!
    X, DEPUTY LYING PRIME MINISTER GREEN!
    A PROMISE IS A PROMISE, DELAY NO LONGER, BE GONE!

  9. A Tory full of ‘bluff and bluster’? No surprise there really, especially if it’s all about preserving their status in the upper echelons of society! Give them a few (in fact, that is many) of us peasants to kick around, lie to and generally screw around, then there ‘bluff’, ‘bluster’ and general nastiness comes as no surprise at all!
