Sky News Kay Burley erupted at David Davis: “Yeah, but we’re all Brexiteers now!”
David Davis squirmed: “But, wait a minute. I’m not judging.
“The issue on Brexit is a perfectly reasonable thing to have a difference of views on.”
David Davis elaborated: “What I’m judging is who took the hard decisions. At that point, Rishi took the hard decisions.

“Why? Because he did the work and made the tough decisions early.
“Now, he’s defending again the less popular policy because it is what he thinks is right.”
Citing the IMF’s forecast for 2023, Sky News’ Kay Burley retorted: “How’s that right? As part of the G20 last year, (Britain has) the lowest growth apart from Russia next year.
