Quote of the day

From The Red Box:
When the Tory attack on Labour is that its Brexit policy is not clear, it would help if the government position wasn't also mired in confusion.
David Davis, the Brexit secretary, came to The Times CEO Summit and said Philip Hammond, the chancellor, says "a number of things that are not quite consistent with each other". Hammond, meanwhile, went to Germany and gave a speech mocking Boris Johnson's claim that Brexit would allow Britain to "have our cake and eat it". 
There are also splits on how long a transition deal might last, what new customs arrangements might look like and the speed with which new free-trade deals could be struck. Thank goodness these people aren't running the country or anything.
Indeed ...
