Britain’s Brexit Secretary David Davis came out in support of Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, dismissing claims made by former Finance Minister George Osborne that she had become a “dead woman walking” after a failed election gamble last week.

“I find it incredibly self-indulgent for the Tory (Conservative) party to be going for this sort of stuff,” Davis told U.K. broadcaster ITV when asked about the former Conservative Member of Parliament’s (MP’s) views on May’s poor performance at the polls.

“It is our job to get on with running the country,” he added.
