David Davis could get major Cabinet role if Boris Johnson wins Tory leadership race
DAVID Davis is set for a comeback in BoJo’s new look Cabinet, it was reported last night.
The former Brexit Secretary — who quit over Theresa May’s Chequers deal— is in talks with the Tory leadership favourite, The Daily Telegraph said.

A source told the paper: “Boris appreciates the fact that while the rest of the Cabinet sat on their hands over the deal, David did the honourable thing.”
He is said to want to become chancellor or foreign secretary, rather than any lesser role.
Meanwhile, it is thought that Jeremy Hunt will stay in the cabinet, with Iain Duncan Smith a contender for deputy PM.
The paper also said Matt Hancock could become chancellor and Jacob Rees-Mogg chief secretary to the Treasury.
Davis recently opened up about this battle to find a cure for his little granddaughter, Chloe.
The five-year-old lives with a very rare, incurable genetic disorder called Syngap1 syndrome.
