Attempting to deny democracy
Sir, - While Jim Crumley admits he is not a political insider (July 11), it is to be hoped his dream of Brexit being reversed remains a fantasy.
To suggest that a handful of politicians should deliberately seek to overturn the result of the largest democratic vote ever held in the UK is depressing.
Of course the Dutch prime minister and other EU politicians are not keen on Brexit – not least because it means their finance and power decrease once the UK cash cow can no longer be milked.
Of course, our elites – who are the ones who most benefit from the EU – will fight tooth and nail to preserve their own interests.
But please, Mr Crumley, don’t pretend that this desire to remain subjugated to an undemocratic EU is anything other than the denial of a free people who wish to govern themselves.
His dream is the ultimate anti-democratic nightmare.
