The nitty-gritty of Brexit negotiations

 

Sir, – From the photograph in Tuesday’s edition, I note with interest that the EU negotiating team includes five women, whereas the UK team includes one woman, who is described as the Brexit secretary’s private secretary. Is this an indication that men in the UK are the better negotiators. Does anyone share my doubts? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – For many of us in the UK, getting rid of compulsory metrication was the main reason for voting to leave the European Union.

It would be a disgrace if metric fetishists in the British civil service were allowed to obstruct this noble aim leaving us only with the negative aspects of Brexit!
