No evidence to back up ‘majority’ claim
✒ I AM stunned by Philip Cole’s assertion that the great majority of the UK want to remain a member of the EU (Letters, October 3) - this is totally fallacious and without any data to back it up.
I believe the best thing Alex Chalk
can do is to continue to fight for a good exit deal, allowing Parliament to deliver the largest ever democratic mandate of 17.4 million people who voted to Leave, representing 70 per cent of Conservative constituencies and 60 per cent of Labour seats.
In terms of the Supreme Court ruling it came as a great surprise that the advice to prorogue was unlawful, as advice from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox had been to the contrary.
I fear that this is a misjudged step down the road the US has created where judges are politicised and voted into positions.
I do agree however that the language on all sides has become too fruity, as passions and frustrations with this zombie Parliament have risen, and should be moderated, as we move toward a smooth exit, and get on with reuniting families, friends and communities who are sick to death with Brexit, want to get it done, and move on.
