Dear David, As we’re old friends now, I’m sure you’ll forgive the informality of my address. I thought you would rather prefer David to ‘Frosty’, with or without the ‘no-man’ handle. I note that, despite your resignation from your role as Brexit Minister, we have not been spared your ruminations on all things Brexit-related. I […]
Listening to our Prime Minister make crass, inappropriate, even insulting comments is unhappily nothing new. We’ve grown accustomed to his style, his language, his need to please his own party.
