Time for Solskjær to wear the No 10 shirt | Brief letters

Donald Tusk | RSPB takeover | No lobby | May’s fate | A lesson from history | Ole Gunnar Solskjær for caretaker PM

Nice of unelected EU panjandrum and Brexit obstructionist Donald Tusk to call for the UK to revoke the decision to leave the EU (Tusk calls for UK to abandon Brexit as he says May’s defeat means deal looks ‘impossible’, 16 January). Dzięki, Donald, for your thoughtful suggestion – but perhaps you’ve forgotten how democracy works.

• Was Wednesday’s Guardian sponsored by the RSPB? There were pictures of capercaillie and goldfinch in G2, black-headed gulls in the Journal and bittern, bearded tits and greater flamingo in the main paper. Missing were the vultures surrounding Mrs May and the albatross round her neck.

• I was amused to see the photo of MPs crowding through the no lobby to vote (Front page, 16 January). Are these the same people who insist we computerise health records, digitise VAT returns, and require benefit claimants to use modern technology?

• If Mrs May survives the vote of confidence, Brexiteers will prop her up like Brezhnev’s corpse until she’s of no further use to them, when they’ll dispose of her, embalmed in the House of Lords, job done and the UK cast adrift into uncharted waters.

• One would have hoped Theresa May had learned from history that brandishing letters from Europe does not bring what one might hope for.

• We need a game-changer. Ole Gunnar Solskjær for temporary PM.
