We deserve new EU referendum
Sir, - I am utterly discombobulated. For the first, and I suspect the last time, I am completely in agreement with the Rev Dr John Cameron.
Brexit will be an unmitigated economic disaster for the whole of the UK.
The EU has no interest in giving the UK an easy ride; quite the reverse as they want to discourage any other country from following in our footsteps.
What should happen is that, once Brexit terms are fully known and understood, there should be a second referendum so that the public are not faced with buying a pig in a poke
This will mean heavy tariffs on all our manufactured goods which will have the inevitable result of manufacturers closing their UK factories and moving them to an EU country with the equally inevitable job losses.
And all this because of a bunch of insular rightwing Tories.
John Major had a word for them but The Courier is a family newspaper so I won’t repeat it here.
What should happen is that, once Brexit terms are fully known and understood, there should be a second referendum so that the public are not faced with buying a pig in a poke.
And if we get the same result again there will have to be a second referendum on Scottish independence. Westminster has no right to force Scotland to quit the EU.
However, after Theresa May has bought the votes of the DUP for a mere £1 billion I hold out little hope of democracy returning to Scotland anytime soon.
I hope that Ruth Davidson can appreciate the irony of the fact that her party can only stay in power with the support of the a party that cannot shake off allegations of homophobia. Jim Robertson. 194 High Street, Montrose.
