At­tempt­ing to deny democ­racy

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - Comment -

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.
