Former Brexit Secretary David Davis raised his eyebrows after his flippant approach to a live TV interview from Parliament.
The Tory MP, who is a spokesperson for leadership candidate Penny Mordaunt, was interviewed by Kay Burley on Sky News ahead of the second round of voting to succeed Boris Johnson.
While he vigorously defended Mordaunt as she faced ‘incoming fire’ from rivals fearful of the momentum behind her campaign to become Prime Minister, it was Davis’ attire that caught most of the eye. people.
Davis mentioned to Burley that he was “just back from the dentist,” which may explain the over-the-shoulder jacket and (arguably) too many undone shirt buttons.
The former Tory leadership candidate – he was beaten in a run-off to David Cameron in 2005 – appeared on the broadcaster again after the latest poll, which saw Mordaunt close in on favorite Rishi Sunak.
This time, Davis was perfectly suited and booted, and acknowledged that to presenter Sophy Ridge.
“I’m here dressed this time,” Davis joked as the interview wrapped up.
“You were a little more laid back with Kay Burley earlier,” Ridge offered.
“Apparently we went viral,” Davis noted.
Indeed, they did. Here are some of the best moments from Twitter, where the consensus seemed to be that the tall curator looked somewhat disheveled.
