(Corrects spelling of Davis in first paragraph)
LONDON, June 12 Britain's Brexit minister David
Davis backed Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, saying claims
made by former finance minister George Osborne that she was a
"dead woman walking" were wrong and self-indulgent.
"I find it incredibly self indulgent for the Tory party to
be going for this sort of stuff," he said on ITV television,
using an alternative name for the Conservative Party.
"It is our job to get on with running the country."
May's Conservatives failed to win a parliamentary majority
in an election last week, meaning it will need the support of
Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to govern.
Davis said however the Conservatives would not adopt the
views of its intended partner on matters such as abortion and
"We don't adopt their views, we don't adopt their policies,"
"We've just been returned to government with a minority
government in effect, it's our duty to make it work, it's our
duty to make it deliver for the British people."
