As pointed out by several observers, David Davis's appearance in front of the Brexit select committee to explain the whereabouts of the impact assessments this morning is, essentially, Monte Python's Cheese Shop Sketch without the music. @EricIdle https://t.co/wLSkKlgjPA— Brian Cox (@ProfBrianCox) December 6, 2017
David Davis just admits to select committee government has conducted no sector impact assessments on Brexit. Having previously said they exist in excruciating detail. Staggering— John Crace (@JohnJCrace) December 6, 2017
