Heard lit­tle about EU gover­nance

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

MANY letters have been writ­ten over the last two years re­gard­ing the ref­er­en­dum to leave the glue of the Euro­pean Union.

Dis­cus­sions have been held re­gard­ing trade agree­ments, cus­toms, bor­ders and any fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties which may arise. Lit­tle, how­ever, has been dis­cussed re­gard­ing the gover­nance of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment, the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion, the Euro­pean Coun­cil and the Euro­pean Courts.

All of these de­part­ments have power to im­ple­ment rules, edicts and reg­u­la­tions which, in some cases, su­per­sede laws, rules and reg­u­la­tions in our own coun­try, which we may not agree with and which may not be the best for our cit­i­zens, but which we have to ac­cept. I have lis­tened to and read about Brexit but have heard very lit­tle, if any­thing, about the gover­nance of the Euro­pean Union over the UK.

I have now come to the con­clu­sion that we are only con­cerned with ex­it­ing the Euro­pean Union from the point of view of trade, bor­ders, cus­toms and econ­omy, and as im­por­tant as these is­sues are it was not the whole point for which the ref­er­en­dum was held. Whether we voted for or against we have to be strong
