Not independent in EU
In response to Peter Swain’s email (Brexit power trip, October 25).
Really should it not be a European Union power grab?
Thank goodness the majority of people voted to leave the European Union.
It’s called democracy Peter. Get over it – 52 per cent over 48 per cent, just as the majority voted to stay part of the United Kingdom.
If you really believe Scotland should be independent as I do, then ask yourself why we should opt out of a Union of four to join a union of 28 with less power and less control than we have at the moment!
It does not make sense and with regards to a power trip it seems some politicians would rather be run by Brussels than Edinburgh or Westminister. Some independence that is. When the Maastricht and Lisbon treaties were signed, were the public asked?
Yet when we are asked whether we want to remain part of a United States of Europe, they and 48 per cent of the public cannot accept a democractic vote.
It’s a disgrace and every politician who voted against the Repeal bill should be booted out of office. John Reilly, via email
