Brexit article belonged on editorial page
I was appalled to read the article, “Months after Brexit, English residents find American political divide ‘appalling’” (Maryland Independent, Nov. 11).
In the first place, an article about Brexit has not much relevance to the people of Southern Maryland. Secondly, the article was heavily biased towards the minority that did not win the Brexit election. In fact, not one pro-Brexit voice was quoted. Thirdly, the article was heavily tilted towards those “residents” — presumably not British citizens — who had Muslim-sounding names. Nothing wrong with that, but it was biased.
This article belongs on the editorial page. In the future, please keep this type of preaching to us on that page.
I am embarrassed by the shrinking news coverage of the Independent, in both the real size of the paper to the content. Please bring back the old Independent. Frederick G. Scott, St. Charles
