Dr Liam Fox Reveals He Won’t Be Using Government Mansion, Prefers To Focus On Trade Job

Fox also moved to stress how much he and his two colleagues had in common, despite claims that they were jockeying for dominance over how Brexit will look.

“We’ve worked very, very closely. Anyone who has worked with David Davis knows that David’s one of the best people to work with because he’s got one of the best strategic minds in politics. He doesn’t think tactically, he does think strategically all the time,” Fox said.

“And of course Boris and I had such a great time in the referendum out and about campaigning. People who judge Boris superficially tend to come a cropper. Boris is a very clever individual who has thought a great deal.

“I also have to say It wasn’t without its fun and we have got a lot of [Three Brexiteers] cartoons saved up now as a consequence, and I’m just wondering when someone’s going to present us with big hats.”

 Fox also said that he had no intention of quitting the Government because he had come back to the Cabinet to carry out the wishes of the British people.

“I regard all of us as being very fortunate to be in this particular Parliament and and to be carrying out this particular task,” he said.

Referring to the result on the morning of the Brexit referendum, he said: ““I am not normally very emotional in my politics but I have to say, and I’m sure I was not the only one, who was really quite tearful when David Dimbleby said and that’s it the British public have voted to leave the European Union.

“I had never felt so proud of my fellow countrymen and women as I did at that moment.

“You have taken on all the doomsayers, you really believe in this country and yourselves. No matter what happens to me in politics that will always be the thing that I remember most.”
