Backers of Nato need to have a history lesson


here’s a small history lesson for those backers of Nato who are telling us how vulnerable we’d be outside of Europe.

In two world wars the first country to stand up to the threat was Great Britain. Both Nato and the US never lifted a finger while we were fighting our own war on terror in Northern Ireland.

They were both strangely quiet during the Falklands conflict. I would like to point out that by my reckoning, the last time Great Britain was invaded by a foreign power was 1066. Paul Clipson, Lincoln
