Deal or no deal?

The Galloway News - - GALLOWAY VIEW -

Sir – Ul­ti­mately the count r y ’ s p e a ce, free­dom and bound­aries de­pend on the peo­ple’s will­ing­ness to de­fend them. It is for this rea­son the right to cede sovereignty must lie with the peo­ple.

As our demo­crat­i­cally elected leader, Theresa May has done her ut­most to ne­go­ti­ate a good deal with the EU.

Some may say that the Gov­ern­ment never re­alised the strength of its hand, oth­ers that our na­tional po­si­tion was un­der­mined by those who could not ac­cept that Brexit means Brexit. In any case, we are where we are.

We have had a ref­er­en­dum on the prin­ci­ple. We have de­cided to leave the EU. We now have to de­cide whether or not to share our sovereignty with the EU.

The next step should be a “this deal or no deal” ref­er­en­dum. I will cam­paign for a no deal but ac­cept ei­ther re­sult as the will of our sov­er­eign peo­ple. Coun­cil­lor David James Cas­tle Dou­glas and Crock­et­ford
