Robbins In Charge?

Theresa May’s chief Brexit negotiator Ollie Robbins (centre)  privately cast doubt on her ability to renegotiate the Irish backstop as part of her Brexit “plan B”, the Telegraph has been told.

A source said Mr Robbins texted Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, during a Cabinet conference call raising concerns about the prospect of re-opening the EU withdrawal agreement.

The Telegraph has been told that Mr Robbins, who was listening in on the call, sent the message to Mr Hammond as Mrs May was outlining plans to secure changes in a bid to win over Tory Eurosceptics and the DUP.

A Government source confirmed that Mr Robbins had sent a text to Mr Hammond during the call but claimed that what he said had been “misrepresented”.

Well, let’s all know, disclose the texts, simple! In July 2018 Robbins was paid a “bonus” of £20,000 on top of his salary of £160,000, which beats May’s salary of £152,000. What’s his new 2019 bonus going to be?
