David Davis Says ‘Whole Government’ Will Be Blamed If Brexit Goes Wrong

Davis also was asked to explain how he, Fox and Boris share their overlapping responsibilities for foreign policy.

“The world is divided up between Europe and the rest. I get Europe, he [Fox] gets the rest,” Davis said. “We have various similar ideas in terms of what the world should look like.”

“Boris has, and bear in mind before we had the EU the Foreign Office was a big job anyway, so he’s got all of that to do, but also he has a task which is creating a mood, a massively important task of creating a mood amongst the people we are dealing with, the 27, that they understand where we are coming from, that they understand where we are not going to go and so on.”

Davis said the three Brexiteer ministers “talk on the phone all the time”.

The veteran Tory MP, who lost out to David Cameron in the 2005 party leadership contest, said he had not expected to be appointed to May’s cabinet and had “failed completely at not looking smug” as he walked up Downing Street to accept the job.
