No ev­i­dence to back up ‘ma­jor­ity’ claim

Gloucestershire Echo - - LETTERS & OPINION -

✒ 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.
