Government disarray tests Tory voters’ loyalty
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
