Philip Hammond is deliberately trying to ‘frustrate’ Brexit, Cabinet colleague says

Philip Hammond on The Andrew Marr Show

The Chancellor hit out at his loose-lipped colleagues, warning they ‘shouldn’t have’ revealed the contents of Cabinet discussions

Philip Hammond is deliberately working to “frustrate” Brexit and treating pro-Leave ministers like “pirates who have taken him prisoner”, a Cabinet minister has told The Telegraph, in an extraordinary attack on one of the most senior members of the Government.

Branding the Chancellor and his Treasury “the Establishment”, the furious senior minister warned of a deep split over how to leave the European Union, launching all-out war as talks restart in Brussels on Monday.

They also revealed a plot to keep a weakened Theresa May in Number 10 in a bid to prevent an early leadership race, warning of a “critical moment” as David Davis flies out to meet his rival negotiators for discussions to set the terms of engagement.

It came as Mr Hammond hit back angrily after days of damaging accusations were leaked to the media against him, including claims that he made sexist remarks and said  public sector workers were overpaid.
