DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4099* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 11 Apr 19


Quite a lot of criticism of the BBC, especially John Humphries, in giving David Davis an easy ride while showing no ability to recognise the reality that it is not up to the UK to say what can be done, but it needs a joint agreement where the UK is the supplicant:


The former Brexit secretary, David Davis, has called for the withdrawal agreement to be renegotiated and for technical solutions to the Irish border issue to be revisited under a managed no deal.
To the incredulity of MPs and commentators Davis insisted that the Malthouse compromise still offered the best solution to the Brexit deadlock.

...

Reaction to the interview has been scathing:

David Lammy

David Davis stuck on a loop on #r4today.

Once again spouting the same nonsense about reopening May's deal and claiming every expert is wrong about No Deal being an economic catastrophe.

Brexiteers have run out of ideas and their lies have been exposed. Let's #PutItToThePeople

Oh God! On such an important morning @BBCr4today thinks the answer is to get the clueless David Davis on for its main interview to witter on about the dead as a dodo “Brady compromise”. #BrexitShambles #FinalSay #PeoplesVote

John Humphreys allowing David Davis to make all sorts of sweeping assertions on the EU in a cosy fireside chat on #r4today ..
Just allowing misinformation
...reality is UK controls own migration and most "migrants" come from outwith EU

Listening to Brexit Bulldog, David Davis, on @r4Today is to be reminded just how hopeless Team Brexit has been in putting together and sustaining a coherent position for more than 2o minutes: cheerfully casual, as usual
