Davis Throws Down The Gauntlet To May

David Davis has thrown down the gauntlet to Theresa May calling on her to publish details of the legal advice that the government has received on the ‘backstop arrangement’ that will be enshrined in the final Brexit deal.

He called the deal “one of the most fundamental” decisions taken by any government in modern times and said that the “authority of our constitution” is on the line.

Comparing the position of Theresa May to that of Tony Blair regarding the Iraq War he noted that, although he won the 2005 General Election even following the publication of the advice from the then Attoney General Lord Goldsmith which shed light on his doubts regarding the legality of Iraq War, Blair’s reputation “never recovered.”

Publication is “politically” but “morally and ethically” the right thing to do in the interests of open government. He said many Tory and DUP MP’s are worried that the backstop could permanently shatter the United Kingdom in a Brexit akin to Dante’s “First circle of Hell”, Purgatory.

If the Attoney General’s advice is published and “all the cards are on the table” then we can all make an informed judgement he argued.
