Remainers in the government are now openly briefing that David Davis does not have the balls to resign and will accept an Olly Robbins fudge:

Cabinet source on David Davis: “I think DD will keep threatening to resign and not doing it. Likes the limelight too much and backbenchs too crowded with similar these days”.

Govt source: “Can never be sure with DD but have the feeling it’s all for dramatic effect.”
