David Davis says a no-deal Brexit is ‘not intimidating or frightening’
Leaving the European Union without a deal in March doesn't scare former Brexit Secretary, David Davis. He tells Christopher Hope on this week's Chopper's Brexit Podcast, “I don’t find ‘no deal’ intimidating at all – it is not the best outcome but I don’t find it frightening. But the Government and the European Union do.”
He admits “there will be a bumpy first year” after a no-deal Brexit but the UK will be able to keep the £39 billion ‘Brexit bill’, adding: “That’s a lot of hospitals and schools.”
On the Brexit talks, Mr Davis says MPs should be given the full legal advice on Theresa May’s Brexit deal because it is “fundamental” to understanding the final deal.
Also on this week's podcast Kit Malthouse, the Housing minister, Professor Chris Hanretty from Royal Holloway University, Damian Lyons Lowe and Dr Isabel Taylor from polling agency, Survation - plus The Telegraph’s Political Editor Gordon Rayner tells the podcast what the hell is going on in the fast-moving world of Brexit.
