One Cabinet minister told The Sun: “We have to offer them a way back, as we must remain a broad church”. That was from discussion of Conservative members of Parliament expelled this week for voting to prevent Britain leaving the EU without an agreement. The references is to accepting "high and low Church" religious approaches in the Anglican Church.

I more direct example is the flying of the Confederate flag to oppose integration etc. approximately 1954-1980.

Thought this might be an interesting topic, but I don't want to get into political discussions.

There's a lot of Nazi and/or Holocaust references among politicians in Israel and/or the West over the last several decades, no?

Boris Johnson has 12 days to set out his Brexit plans to the EU, according to Finland's prime minister.

Antti Rinne said he and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed the UK needed to produce the proposals in writing by the end of September, adding if not, "then it's over".

Finland currently holds the EU's rotating presidency.

A Downing Street source said: "We will continue negotiating and put forward proposals at the appropriate time."
