30, 2019, when free move­ment will have ended, if an EU ci­ti­zen presents him­self at our borders?”

Her re­ply? “It is an im­por­tant prin­ci­ple, as has been set out re­peat­edly, that we wish to be an out­ward-look­ing trad­ing na­tion post-Brexit.”

For the ben­e­fit of the dis­cour­te­ous Ms Nokes, there are just over four months to go un­til Brexit – and EU cit­i­zens here, and em­ploy­ers try­ing to re­cruit staff, de­serve bet­ter than her pol­icy mess when the deeply-mov­ing trib­utes to the First World War fallen have shown a de­sire for Bri­tain’s fu­ture re­la­tions with Eu­rope to be peace­ful and re­spect­ful.

WHAT HAS York­shire done to so of­fend the Gov­ern­ment that it has left this re­gion at the mercy of three Min­is­ters who don’t ap­pear to give a damn?

First James Bro­ken­shire. The Hous­ing Sec­re­tary’s re­fusal to con­sider the One York­shire de­vo­lu­tion blue­print is made even more galling by the fact that he’s still to visit this county to meet lo­cal lead­ers over six months af­ter his ap­point­ment.
