Former Brexit Secretary attacks May’s deal

Norway Plus? More like EU-minus.

That was the somewhat “inside Brexit” barb from David Davis towards his former cabinet colleague Amber Rudd. He poured cold water on her suggestion that Britain could pursue a Norway-style deal and accept freedom of movement as part of membership of the single market and customs union.

Ahead of a meeting with Tory activists in Birmingham, he also warned the Prime Minister that the question was not whether, but how her deal would be defeated in the Commons.
