Sir, – I was bemused to see a tweet from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council informing us that the last piece of Cornish granite was now in place at the Dún Laoghaire Baths renovation site. Clearly, some are having a harder Brexit than others. – Yours, etc,

ULTAN Ó BROIN,

Florence, Italy.

Sir, – Whatever about the archaic arrangements at Westminster, it does make for great TV drama. – Yours, etc,
