As we have discovered as time has gone on many of the claims made for the benefits of leaving have been found to be spurious. Similarly, much of the rhetoric against the E.U.is false and has been perpetuated by a number of pro-Brexit groups including the E.R.G. Most of these lies can be found on the website Euromyths. Have you been taken in?
Far from being dictated to by Eurocrats the UK has been in the forefront of establishing standards and procedures adopted by Europe and we have many friends within the EU who are dismayed by our rejection of what has been achieved.
The challenge of trying to establish beneficial trade links with other countries is immense.
Of £117 billion of foreign trade currently with our biggest trading partner being the E.U the UK can only muster £16 billion with a combination of other countries.
Finally, the venom being directed against MP's and Parliament can only be from those who don't understand our democracy and how it works. We have a representative Parliamentary democracy where MPs follow their own conscience and do not necessarily have to follow the wishes of the most vociferous section of their electorate (nor the most wealthy neither as such things disappeared along with the Rotten Boroughs.
We would all be better served if we could discuss one of the greatest issues of our time much better informed.
