This is quite literally beyond parody.

These revelations come after David Davis admitted that the 58 Brexit impact assessments he claimed his department was working never existed. However in October he suggested impact assessments did exist and that Theresa May had read the "summary outcomes of them" if not every "excruciating detail".

David Davis needs to go. David Davis has been accused of misleading parliament and under his leadership the Brexit department has turned incompetence into an art form, he must resign.

It's standard procedure to produce an impact assessment when bringing in new policies, yet the government haven't bothered to produce one for Brexit, an issue that will affect the future of this country for generations to come.

The staggering incompetence ministers are showing over Brexit shows why we must give people the choice to reject the final deal and stay in the EU.

We need Dexit: An exit from the duplicity and dither of David Davis.

Sign our petition calling on David Davis to resign now.
