A true debt of grat­i­tude

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS was sent to me a few days ago but at this present time be­comes very apt.

Jean Claude Juncker should be forced to walk past ev­ery white grave­stone in Nor­mandy and say a per­sonal thank you to all Bri­tish, Amer­i­can and Com­mon­wealth sol­diers who gave their lives, so that Eu­rope could be free.

He should also be re­minded that Britain bor­rowed 120 bil­lion dol­lars in 1945 to fund this free­dom and this took the Bri­tish tax­pay­ers 61 years to re­pay it back.

I there­fore sug­gest that the EU pay this fig­ure first, along with all the in­ter­est we ac­crued, then we can talk about pay­ing our share of his “bar bill”. Lest we for­get. We shall re­mem­ber them all. Ray­mond Bray
