Be­lief in Brexit

The Daily Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

SIR – The flaw in Chris­tian Frog­gatt’s anal­ogy – that he and his wife don’t be­lieve in Fa­ther Christ­mas, yet de­liver gifts to their chil­dren on his be­half every year (Letters, Oc­to­ber 12) – is that he and his wife are loyal to the con­cept, even though it is fic­ti­tious.

Nigel Farage’s crit­i­cism of the Prime Min­is­ter is based upon fact. Dur­ing a pre-elec­tion speech in June this year, Theresa May said: “You can only de­liver Brexit if you be­lieve in Brexit.”

When asked re­cently on LBC about how she would vote on Brexit now, her re­sponse led many to be­lieve that she does not be­lieve in it. Ed­die Hooper

SIR – Brexit: cometh the hour, cometh the man (woman).

Where the hell is he (she)? Philip Cong­don

SIR – Since the EU ref­er­en­dum, our com­pany’s non-eu sales have risen from 4.6 per cent to 19 per cent of our an­nual turnover – which has also grown by a quar­ter.

It is high time the Trea­sury caught up with Bri­tain’s small ex­porters – we are not only ready for a “no deal” Brexit, we are look­ing for­ward to it. Peter H Jackson

SIR – Imag­ine if the EU ne­go­tia­tors were car dealers:

EU: “So you wish to pur­chase a car? Please give me €40,000.”

UK: “But what will I get for my money? What size is the car? Will it be au­to­matic or man­ual? New or sec­ond-hand?”

EU: “Give us the money now and then we will talk about it.”

If the cus­tomer paid up­front, he would get a seven-year-old Peu­got 207. Steve Car­tridge

SIR – For ma­jor changes to hap­pen in an or­gan­i­sa­tion there has to be enough of a dis­tur­bance to gal­vanise peo­ple into ac­tion – what is usu­ally de­scribed as a “burn­ing plat­form” sit­u­a­tion. Healthy or­gan­i­sa­tions will act ac­cord­ingly.

The pro­posed Brexit tran­si­tion pe­riod is sim­ply an­other form of pro­cras­ti­na­tion, giv­ing op­por­tu­nity for Re­main­ers to sab­o­tage the process. It is coun­ter­pro­duc­tive and to be re­gret­ted. Dr Peter Grey
