In Europe we are safe

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

I AM in my 80s and I re­mem­ber the bombs drop­ping in Manch­ester in 1940/41. I was a child and it was ter­ri­fy­ing. Those who have not ex­pe­ri­enced war can­not com­pre­hend how lucky we are to have had peace for over 70 years.

We are kept safe be­cause we are in Europe. The Euro­pean Project which Win­ston Churchill be­lieved in so pas­sion­ately is at the cen­tre of this. It may not be per­fect but in all those years, like a fam­ily, we have not been dragged into war with our neigh­bours.

If only for this rea­son I think we should stay close to Europe. Per­son­ally, I would rather stay in Europe, but at the very least we should all have a say in what hap­pens next.

I have heard on the news the idea of a peo­ple’s vote on any deal that Theresa May agrees with Europe. I am all for this. Name sup­plied Brid­gend
