‘False prom­ises’ of EU vote

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – With Re­mem­brance Day ap­proach­ing and the Ar­mistice, I re­mem­ber my cousin, Sgt Basil Me­nary, who died aged 22 years a few months af­ter he was mar­ried, as rear gun­ner in a Hal­i­fax bomber tak­ing part in the dis­as­trous Nurem­berg raid.

He left a preg­nant wife and never saw his daugh­ter fol­low­ing the loss of his plane on April 30 1944. I write be­cause I fail to see how our prime min­is­ter can stand at the Ceno­taph on Sun­day and salute 80 mil­lion ser­vice­men and women and still con­tinue to pro­ceed with Brexit.

In a Chris­tian coun­try we know we are com­manded “to love our neigh­bours as our­selves” . We also know that the EU was cre­ated to end wars in Europe. It is time politi­cians of all com­plex­ions ad­mit­ted that the EU ref­er­en­dum vote was not demo­cratic but wrapped around with de­ceit, false prom­ises and du­bi­ous fi­nance.
