Dominic Grieve isn’t very happy with Boris Johnson

Dominic Grieve QC MP says the government’s approach to Brexit could leave them open to a legal challenge [Image: PA].

Here’s another Tory who doesn’t approve of Boris Johnson’s boorish interventions in the already-practically-derailed Brexit process: Dominc Grieve, the former Attorney General.

On the subject of Johnson’s recent Brexit interventions, Grieve said: “The principle of cabinet responsibility is that you debate and discuss within government how you are going forward: you agree a line, and having agreed a line, you stick to it. What you can’t do is to agree a line in cabinet and then make public statements which are—or appear to be—at variance with what you’ve previously just agreed with your colleagues. That is not a proper approach.”

    for a QC he seems to have a very strange idea of what can be successfully legally challenged, but then that is how the legal profession makes its money chasing the unchasable.
