EU failures need no explanation
DEAR Editor, The letter from Paul Richards of Best For Britain displays the typical arrogance of unreconstructed Remainers, in that he seems to believe that the alleged benefits of belonging to the EU are self-evident and do not need to be explained.
For me the only thing about the European Union that is self-evident is that it is becoming a failure.
It is failing its members economically, socially and politically.
Its economic policies have already done significant damage to the prospects of several members, socially there is very little evidence that it is helping individual members to stem the tide of mass, largely unwanted, immigration and politically it is clearly doing nothing to move its governance from dictatorship to democracy.
I am convinced that the EU is going to fall apart with very bad consequences for the continent of Europe, so I am certain that the best thing for our country is to get as far away from it as possible and as quickly as possible.
There may be some short term difficulties after we leave but there is no doubt in my mind that in the long term Great Britain will better off, not worse of, as a sovereign independent country.
