May should follow Thatcher’s example
IF my memory serves me right, the last female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, summoned her cabinet to Number 10 to speak to them individually, and we all know how that turned out. It seems to me that certain ministers have not got the courage of their convictions because on a one- to- one basis reluctantly they are agreeing with Theresa May, then out of earshot they either disagree with what they have decided or even resign.
This country has not been so divided since King Charles I and the Royalists against Oliver Cromwell’s Parliamentarians. This country has always been divided but never on this scale. The architects of the referendum are all out of the firing line leaving the Leavers and the Remainers to pick up the pieces. M Bach, by email
