So much for David Davis’s principles, then.

Isn’t it strange, how MPs’ principled opposition to their leaders seems to stop as soon as they get offered a pay rise?

One wonders if other MPs may suddenly lose their principled opposition to, I don’t know, NHS privatisation or benefit cuts as soon as they get the job they want.

Naming no names, of course…

The most public and vociferous critic of Theresa May’s invasive new snooping laws stopped opposing them as soon as he entered the cabinet.

David Davis has said in the past that the Government’s surveillance legislation has “serious” flaws and must be rewritten to stop abuse. But he appears to have dropped his opposition to the law after becoming Theresa May’s minister for Brexit.
