Kyle – Davis needs to pull his socks up and negotiate for Britain

David Davis will not travel to Brussels today for talks with the EU, it is reported, as the Brexit negotiations enter their fifth round starting today and ending on Thursday.

Commenting, Peter Kyle MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Theresa May says the ball is in the EU’s court, yet David Davis can’t even be bothered to pick up his racket.

“Britain deserves much better than a part-time negotiator. The clock is ticking, the time left to negotiate is finite, and every day of fruitless talks takes us closer to a destructive Brexit with no deal at all.

“David Davis needs to pull his socks up, get on the Eurostar, and negotiate for Britain rather than posture in London.”
