Davis ‘thick as mince’, says for­mer head of Vote Leave

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - News -

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”.
