Once again, shamefully, Enoch Powell is misquoted. What he said was a classical allusion, lost to most: Powell's peroration of the speech gave rise to its popular title. He quotes the Sibyl's prophecy in the epic poem Aeneid, 6, 86–87, of "wars, terrible wars, / and the Tiber foaming with much blood". Mr Brokenshire's 'band-wagon-jumping' sadly diminishes him rather than the object of his hackneyed, illiberal response to Sir Roger's misquoted remarks. Par for the course in this talentless government.

Surely the tax payer is entitled to see a line by line statement of the 'divorce bill'? I'd like to see how UK's accrued share of EU assets are described as well as the liabilities. I assume that such an account exists and can see no justification for concealing this.

What a lovely idea! It has the merit of honesty which separates it from previous Conservative and Labour parties' election promises.

I applaud your positive thinking and have argued along similar lines elsewhere. Courage mon brave! Macron is a pseudo-Hollande, not a proto-Chirac. Sadly most of our enemies live in Westminster and Whitehall not Paris or Berlin. C'est la vie. We are, unfortunately, stuffed, much as I'd really like to agree with you. I think it's done, over, and truly buggered for the time being. Time to re-group and contemplate the next assault and make damn sure that it's a) A winner and; b) A winner that can be brought home.

We shall see. It's unchartered territory in the new scenario. The target of 30% of seats in the new Euro Parl by Euro-sceptics across Europe seems as reasonable as it is attainable. It's beyond stupid that our MPs have left this door open. I'll be surprised if it falls short of 35% under present circumstances in most countries.

Indeed. They are abysmal. I rather hoped that they'd learned something after being caught fiddling the books in 2009. It appears that they still enjoy ignoring the voters. It's not looking good.

It will be punished. Instead of canvassing for the Conservative Party, I shall be taking time to discuss and advise friends to vote for anybody but the Tory candidate. I'd hope that they would be persuaded to support a Brexit Party or Ukip candidate but I can't guarantee this. The Conservative Party has forfeited its right to govern the country. It gives me no pleasure to have arrived at this conclusion.

And the 24 Ukip seats vs 20 Labour and 19 Conservative last time? I'd hazard a guess that between Ukip and Brexit Party they could increase this by 50% without too much trouble if our PM is daft enough to leave this option open.

An exercise in 'transparency', or honesty as we used to say, would be for the Conservative Party to declare how many members it has today vs how many members it had six months, or a year ago. I'm sure that I'm not the only one of 120 local association members to have resigned in the last six months. I'm guessing that another 30/40 have got to the end of their tether.

As in number of MEPs? I'd be surprised. If we have to go through this charade of electing a gang of people who are as close to the levers of EU power as I and you are, my guess would be a clean sweep for the candidates who want us to have left by now. The others will poll abysmally low nationally.
