I WAS delighted to read The View from the Hill article written by Faith Eckersall, "Things that matter are found closer to home" on Saturday.

How wonderfully this summed up what most reasonable people with whom I mix tend to feel about Brexit and the behaviour of politicians of all parties throughout this drawn out saga.

Without wishing to detract from the importance of Brexit for the United Kingdom, ordinary people have to get on with their lives and can't be glued to developments within the "Westminster Bubble" where MPs seem to be totally fixated and jockeying for position.

One of my major concerns is how our people no longer seem to be able to debate and agree to differ without vitriol and much finger pointing. How are we going to repair our divided country?
