Tusk’s ‘special place in Hell’ comment
Sir, – I can fully understand Donald Tusk’s frustration. Any first-year marketing student knows that if you wish to launch a product, you do your market research first. You then assess any problems arising, deal with the major problem first, and if it is too difficult to resolve, you either don’t launch the product, or you amend it in such a way that it is acceptable to the consumer.
The British government has chosen to ignore this basic tenet and has blamed all and sundry for its own shortcomings. – Yours, etc,
Sir, – I can only imagine the outrage, indignation, fury, squawking about religious terminology and whatever particular bone one chooses to gnaw on if any of the Brexiteers were to describe the EU fat cats and Remainers as deserving of a place in Hell.
The deafening silence from the vast majority of the media about such intemperate language is indicative of their bias and prejudice towards anyone who doesn’t sing from the same hymn sheet. – Yours, etc,
Sir, – Predictably, the Tory and DUP Brexiteers and their friends in the UK tabloids are outraged. However, some would say the president of the European Council didn’t go nearly far enough.
Jean-Claude Juncker surely spoke for many in Brussels and beyond, including in Ireland, when he implied that Brexit had made a hell out of his job as European Commission president. – Yours, etc,
Sir, – Is there a special place in Heaven for Remainers? I wonder what it looks like. Does it have its own European army? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Those Brexiteers who have their “special place in Hell” presumably would have had to cross the hard border called the river Styx. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Is Tusk the elephant in the room? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Hell hath no fury like a Brexiteer scorned! – Yours, etc,
Sir, – Perhaps Donald Tusk was referring to the probable outcome of Brexit for the English fishing fleet. A special plaice in Hull? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – And I had convinced myself that there were worse places than Hell. – Yours, etc,
