Listening to the English speaking world
COVENTRY City councillor Glenn Williams is right to say that Margaret Thatcher is, “the greatest political heroine we have ever had,” and he proudly quotes The Lady: “In my lifetime all our problems have come from mainland Europe and all the solutions have come from the English-speaking nations across the world.”
Our current problems exist outside of The Lady’s lifetime.
Nevertheless, Councillor Glenn Williams should take Lady Thatcher’s advice and actually listen to the leaders of the English speaking world at this time: all around the world from the first part of the daily time zone horizon to the last they are saying, very clearly, emphatically, and in English, that it is in our best interests to vote to remain in the EU.
In addition, the leaders of the non-English speaking world who regard themselves as our friends, from the first part of the daily time zone horizon to the last, are also saying, in English, that we ought to vote to remain.
We have yet to solve the puzzle of why anyone would want to vote other than to say the United Kingdom should remain a member of the European Union. Michael Lanagan Coundon Coventry
