    “Passion and wit”? She needs to go and see “The Darkest Hour” to see what passion and wit, courtesy of Winston Churchill, really are.

    @John Marriott Wow, classy – attacking Wera for her German nationality like that. How lovely of you Brexit gammon.

    Red Liberal, I am merely commenting on the description of the lady’s performance, which, in my humble opinion, was neither passionate nor witty. Perhaps the pronoun I should have used was ‘you’ rather than ‘she’. How anyone can assume I am attacking her origins beggars belief.
    I guess that your response is an attempt at sarcasm. It is a pity that you have jumped to conclusions about my loyalties. I voted to stay in the EEC in 1975 and to remain in the EU in 2016. You are perfectly entitled to your opinion. However, I would have more respect for it if you didn’t hide behind a pseudonym.

    “Superb performance”. Now Jess Phillips in the House of Commons yesterday. THAT was a superb performance. Mind you, Don Foster would be a hard act to follow.
