The great Brexit swin­dle

Sunday Express - - LETTERS -

I have spent years dis­re­gard­ing con­spir­acy the­o­ries and be­liev­ing al­most all to be flights of fancy. How­ever the per­for­mance of our gov­ern­ing classes and civil ser­vants with re­gard to Brexit make it al­most im­pos­si­ble to be­lieve that there is not one here.

We have spent years now be­ing told that “Brexit means Brexit” or that we would get a good deal or leave on World Trade Or­ga­ni­za­tion terms as free men and women. In­stead we have had Project Fear from the Bank of Eng­land, the Chan­cel­lor and mealy-mouthed MPs in­ter­ested only in their own progress to power.

The EU has given us its terms know­ing full well Parliament will re­ject them. It then ex­pects us to re­con­sider our vote to leave and beg on bended knee to re­main.

At the next gen­eral elec­tion can we have “None of the above” on the bal­lot pa­per so that I may vote with­out spoil­ing it? Michael Tar­rant, Welling, Greater Lon­don
