All I can say is that if you haven't seen the phrase before then your powers of descrambling
are all the more impressive! Well done, You. :-))
Not really (but thanks :laughter: ); the "keeping in the loop" and "message" clues led me to "notification" (which had a requisite number of letters); took me ages to descramble the ""reply topic" bit, though, because I kept 'seeing' "price" and "topper".

Sorry but I've had to edit this post twice. First I thought my anagram was wrong so changed it to add a letter. Then I realised my original anagram was right but my letter count was wrong so I changed it again. I hope it's right this time.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
