You must have been living in a cave. It seems to be the accepted narrative in the face of revelations in the press that Ollie Robbins at May's behest was doing all the "negotiating" behind the scenes. Davis, Raab and latterly Barclay were parked "out front" to distract the media and con the electorate into thinking it was all going ahead as planned, as surely it must with a Brexiteer supposedly leading the team (for a mere four hours of meetings during his whole tenure in Davis' case apparently), right...?
It just goes to show what a useless tosser Davis is. I would be very surprised if May was encouraging him to sit on his bum
Accepted narrative in some brexiter circles, doesn't begin to make it a anywhere close to right.
I refer you to all the good press she was getting, piling into Europe for late night meetings to sort things out. You do remember her 'damage limitation' dashes in November and December last year.
