Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

PER­HAPS I thought the sub­ject was closed, yet with each new let­ter in the Ob­server there be­comes more about Brexit and still peo­ple can­not seem to an­swer my ques­tions.

The lat­est from Mr Grady (Septem­ber 21) doesn’t help. What are these EU rules that do us harm?

He quotes the fish­er­men who like the farm­ers are deeply wor­ried about us leav­ing.

How do we feed 65 mil­lion peo­ple in this is­land with­out Euro­pean help which will be there but at a higher cost?

Se­condly he ob­vi­ously does not re­alise the ef­fect on unem­ploy­ment with the car man­u­fac­tur­ers mak­ing plans to leave.

In fact he quotes about unem­ploy­ment be­ing down which is rub­bish.

Apart from the over a mil­lion on zero-hours con­tracts does he not know af­ter six months you are taken off the job seek­ers al­lowance and there­fore not on the fig­ures?

That is only the rea­son the “mas­saged” fig­ures are down.

The ques­tion re­mains that since most of our trade is with Europe, who are we go­ing to trade with and what have we got to trade with?

Seventy per cent of our econ­omy is ser­vices. Amer­ica, Canada, China, don’t make me laugh.

None of these coun­tries will help us, only if it’s a one-sided deal.

All we will get is the chlo­rine-washed chick­ens from Amer­ica (which Europe bans) in re­turn for a stake in our NHS.

As for China, we all know how one-sided that will be. No doubt we will be swamped with all that cheap in­fe­rior Chi­nese steel which Amer­ica and the EU place a heavy sub­sidy on.

No-one is go­ing to do us a favour.

Each day there are more prob­lems raised.

Brexit will only be good for the wealthy and most of their money go­ing abroad any­way.

I only hope the peo­ple don’t re­gret the vote but ev­ery­thing [sug­gests] or­di­nary peo­ple will. David En­twistle via email
