File photo dated 13/7/16 of Prime Minister Theresa May who should put the Government on a war-style footing to get the best deal out of Brexit, a leading Leave campaigner has said. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Sunday September 25, 2016. With the calendar soon to pass 100 days since the historic vote, Frank Field said the Prime Minister should take her lead from Sir Winston Churchill by putting herself at the head of a Whitehall machine totally focused on the single aim of making a success of withdrawal from the EU.

Have your say

Another party conference season has passed. Mrs May warming to the role as “Thatcher Mark 2” offered the predictable “united we stand” façade.

This was in contrast to Labour’s state of near-civil war. The Daily Mail rejoiced in the headline, “Corbyn in La-La-Land.” Quite so. UKIP, of course, has provided enormous entertainment, you couldn’t make it up as they say. Tim Farron’s Lib-Dems (remember them?) are as ever above all very “earnest”.

We enjoyed Newsnight’s reporter chasing comments from senior Tories which for all the wishes of “Leavers” on That Issue, won’t go away. The usual suspects were too busy to comment, but Boris Johnson’s father saved the day with: “No, I’ve nothing to say on this, however I can talk about elephants.” Seriously, I am not making this up. I am ending with another verbatim response. Speaking on Radio 4’s World at One (October 3) Columbia’s ambassador to the UK, Nestor Rosario, said of his country’s recent referendum: “Oh no, it was nothing like your Brexit, nobody told any lies.”
