Boris must come up with facts and figures
BORIS Johnson has made another impassioned speech in support of Brexit.
He obviously strongly believes in it as he has apparently done for many years. However, he presents what seems at first sight to be a reasoned argument, but fails completely to give any real facts or evidence to support it.
He gives a general impression of what he thinks will happen. I am afraid that I am not convinced at all by what he has said. I think that the only figure he has quoted is his estimate of what we pay the EU every week, not mentioning that areas such as Wales have benefited greatly from EU funding – just take the upgrading of the Heads of the Valleys road as one example.
Until Boris starts to use correct figures and established facts, I feel sure neither I nor those businesses and their employees who depend greatly on the EU for their sales and employment will be moved at all by his arguments. GW Hopkins Merthyr Tydfil
