Bri­tain and Brexit

The Guardian Weekly - - Reply -

A year ago fol­low­ing Brexit, I con­tacted my adult daugh­ters in Lon­don re­call­ing the anx­ious push, decades ear­lier, to gain en­try to Europe. Lit­tle won­der, there­fore, my fer­vent sup­port for Jonathan Freed­land’s rhetor­i­cal propo­si­tion, Can Brexit be stopped (30 June)?

• In your 9 June cover story, How US be­came a rogue state, Joseph Stiglitz says: “Don­ald Trump has thrown a hand grenade into the global eco­nomic ar­chi­tec­ture that was so painstak­ingly con­structed in the years after the end of the sec­ond world war.”

Con­sider what the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment and her two prime min­is­ters David Cameron and Theresa May have done. They have thrown a time bomb into the Euro­pean Union, so painstak­ingly con­structed in the years after the end of the sec­ond world war, which resulted in the deaths of mil­lions of young peo­ple.

Does this make Great Bri­tain a “rogue state”? SH Jayasena Colombo, Sri Lanka
