WE can’t go around publicly naming someone an arch brexiter, or arch remainer come to that, without dividing the country into Roundheads and Cavaliers or risking a war of the roses.

The media is getting more fond of it by the day, and the suggestion has even been made that we should be represented in parliament mainly by in and out parties rather than Tory and Labour.

Maybe that is the future, but until it is calling someone an arch brexiter as The Fly columnist and others have done in your newspaper in recent weeks, is as potentially divisive as racism, and it should stop before it gets us all into trouble.
