I’m not going to bother responding to specific points raised by GWN (CBNews Letters to the Editor August 25) as it’s clearly such ill-informed nonsense as to be a complete waste of time. I will just say that those holding similar false hopes that Brexit will make UK great again, and open UK up to a world of new opportunities are going to be severely disappointed.
As those trying to steer this rudderless ship know full well, Brexit can only be a complete and utter disaster, for the UK economy, its reputation and its future. Businesses will suffer, but more importantly, people will suffer, especially those with limited means.
What keeps me, and thousands like me going through all this, is that the British public are changing their minds – not GWN obviously, but hundreds of thousands of others, and the “will of the people” has come to mean something quite different.
The reason so many Leavers are so angry is because they are seriously worried that Brexit won’t happen – they can see the writing on the wall, and the fact that May no longer has the power to make it happen.
I am proud to be European, and grateful that I do have the European courts for my protection – I certainly don’t trust UK to protect my rights – they had to be made to go to court just to give parliament their legal right of involvement.
I will continue to spend every waking moment possible doing all I can to protect citizens’ rights, ours and EU citizens in UK, but the best way to do that is to stop Brexit. I’m working on that!
