Gov­ern­ment dis­ar­ray tests Tory vot­ers’ loy­alty

The Daily Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

SIR – I have been a Con­ser­va­tive all my life, vot­ing Tory in ev­ery elec­tion. But my loy­alty is wa­ver­ing. I see a Con­ser­va­tive Gov­ern­ment in dis­ar­ray with two mem­bers of the Cab­i­net gone and the pos­si­bil­ity of oth­ers to fol­low.

The Prime Min­is­ter doesn’t seem to have a grip and the Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions ap­pear on the sur­face to be sham­bolic. We ur­gently need a strong leader and I urge the Gov­ern­ment to take steps to find a so­lu­tion. At present we are be­com­ing a world­wide laugh­ing stock. Lt Col Richard King-evans

SIR – The machi­na­tions of the am­bi­tious seem to be tak­ing ad­van­tage of the cur­rent cli­mate of witch-hunt and re­crim­i­na­tion. How bet­ter to get rid of ri­vals than to de­stroy rep­u­ta­tions with ru­mour and in­nu­endo? R T Se­main

SIR – It is in­ter­est­ing how one’s view of his­tory can be in­flu­enced by cur­rent events.

I am be­gin­ning to see John Ma­jor as a strong prime min­is­ter and Gor­don Brown as a charm­ing and charis­matic leader. Richard Hol­loway

Bris­tol
