But a hard core of the Opposition MPs' constituents voted for Brexit!! It's their job to deliver it - isn't it? A strong 'opposition' in this context is indefinable. I blame David Cameron.

Well, as always, David Pountney takes your breath away with his vivid staging. But should we be even remotely confused? Reading:

I, a Remainer, will be fascinated to discover what the liberal, forward-looking opponents of Brexit will make of the current Labour shenanigans, especially as Corbyn is now about to connive at Leaving in a well-timed revelation of the traditional Leftist opposition to the EU.

The Sixties and Seventies were a blur to me. I had a family to consider. I wouldn't have had it any other way but I'm tempted to celebrate those crepe-paper, mini-skirted, kipper tied decades any time now. Watch this space.

A lot of Labour supporters are waiting to see if Corbyn connives at Brexit.

It's not often one hears this music live outside London and some other centres of contemporary music, including the Vale of Glamorgan, with its marvellous annual festival. Reading:

In honourable, not self-congratulatory, pursuit of readers, I refer to my essay, Aspiring To A Watery Heroism, which will be published in the next issue of the Irish magazine The Blue Nib, in print and online. It'll be my second to find a home there.

Well done, Sara. Kitten in a cravat, though. Is that jive talk?

OK. Would you like me to juggle three potatoes, a Mars bar, and a brace of Toulouse sausages?

Brilliant piece, Jafar. We all need to think about these issues and their complexities.

The people who run social media are now hyper-sensitive (but still up to their old tricks). In an oddly American way, and aided by the nature of exchanges in cyberspace, they balk at dodgy words but miss unsavoury concepts.

Don't give up. A winner of the BBC short story prize - I forget which one - said his story had been rejected three times by two magazines and one competition before he struck lucky with the Beeb. Tells you something.

Honest, witty, forthright. Keep it up (when your old's gone).

The arrogance of Leadsom and the Tories is astounding. The ball is not in the EC's court: the court and all the balls have been ceded to the British parliament. Brexit and the hapless Tory government have caused all this, not the EU. Barnier is worth a brace of Tory dolts.
