Sir, – I was charmed by Philip Pettit’s piece on intangible borders (“Living with a hard Brexit”, Opinion & Analysis, January 10th).

But I’m sorry to tell him that it is impossible in English to construct a sentence for official use which a British government cannot subvert to suit its changing policy interests. – Yours, etc,
