May should fol­low Thatcher’s ex­am­ple

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

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
