‘False promises’ of EU vote
SIR, – With Remembrance Day approaching and the Armistice, I remember my cousin, Sgt Basil Menary, who died aged 22 years a few months after he was married, as rear gunner in a Halifax bomber taking part in the disastrous Nuremberg raid.
He left a pregnant wife and never saw his daughter following the loss of his plane on April 30 1944. I write because I fail to see how our prime minister can stand at the Cenotaph on Sunday and salute 80 million servicemen and women and still continue to proceed with Brexit.
In a Christian country we know we are commanded “to love our neighbours as ourselves” . We also know that the EU was created to end wars in Europe. It is time politicians of all complexions admitted that the EU referendum vote was not democratic but wrapped around with deceit, false promises and dubious finance.
