Not in­de­pen­dent in EU

East Kilbride News - - EAST KILBRIDE VIEW -

Dear Ed­i­tor,

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
