Davis ‘thick as mince’, says former head of Vote Leave
The former head of the Vote Leave campaign has branded Brexit Secretary David Davis “thick as mince”, as he warned that a provision in the Brexit secretary’s so-called Great Repeal Bill would allow ministers to cave in to EU demands at the last minute.
The Twitter outburst by Vote Leave campaign director Dominic Cummings reflects continuing rancour between different wings of the Brexit movement which saw intense infighting at the time of last year’s EU referendum.
It comes after Mr Cummings admitted there was a chance that leaving the EU would turn out to be an “error” and described Government members who thought the UK should leave the European atomic energy community Euratom as “morons”.
In a stream of messages on Twitter, Mr Cummings said Mr Davis was “thick as mince, lazy as a toad and vain as Narcissus”.
