No threat of federal Europe
Sir, - The essential Remain argument is that in a globalised world it is vital that this industrial nation remains part of the largest transnational trading block.
The real problems we face, such as international capital flows, are best addressed within the EU so why would we want to become a vulnerable, isolated target?
There is no chance of the EU becoming a federal state and key decisions will continue to be made in the Council of Ministers by heads of national governments.
The EU Commission is made up of Humphrey Appleby clones who fell off their national ladders: second-rate civil servants shifting paper on a gravy train to nowhere.
The father of the EU was General de Gaul who hated the USA model and made sure we had a united Europe of states rather than a United States of Europe.
