David Davis On Project Fear: "What Next? A Plague Of Locusts?"
Senior Conservative David Davis on 'Project Fear:' "What's next: a plague of locusts?"
Senior Conservative David Davis attacks the pro-EU campaign's tactics, saying that 'Project Fear' isn't working on the British public.
In an interview with Iain Dale on LBC, Davis said: "Earlier in the week when we had the warnings about an imminent World War III, I thought: what next, a plague of locusts?"
"It's not biting. The Obama thing didn't bite, the Treasury thing bit for two days and then it died.
"I think people are beginning simply not to believe it. And it's partly because this is an establishment vs anti-establishment fight going on."
Davis continued: "What the ordinary working man and woman and pensioner in Britain is seeing is that the establishment is not solving the problems.
"It's not solving Putin, it's not solving the Middle East, it's not solving economic problems."
Davis also spoke at some length about the Prime Minister's apology to Suliman Gani. David Cameron said sorry to the ex-Tooting imam after making false accusations about him in the Commons.
Davis said the apology could have been "more generous and more loud".
Davis contd on LBC re Gani "This was a Blairite apology: 'we apologise if you're offended.' It's a serious error & I think it will cost us"— Matthew Harris (@hattmarris84) May 12, 2016
