AGE DOESN’T ALWAYS BRING WISDOM
UNFORTUNATELY George Meacock’s letter (June 9 edition) typifies the low level of debate on both sides of the EU referendum.
How dare he describe around half the population who may vote remain as being beneath contempt?
How dare he appropriate the undoubted sacrifice of the millions of war dead to his cause?
They died to protect this country and the rest of Europe from enforced military conquest by a single nation, and they died to protect democracy.
It is a pity that Mr Meacock prefers ignorant abuse of those who do not share his views on Europe to reasoned argument.
May I also remind him that age does not necessarily bring wisdom, and wisdom is not the preserve of the elderly.
