So sorry for what?

Dear Editor,

I would just like to respond to Graham Anderson’s letter (Resident, June 30 edition). In it he uses terms such as “I apologise on behalf of my country, I am ashamed of my country and can’t ever think of it well again”. Apologise for what?

Have we just committed some kind of atrocity? Maybe a mass murder?

The people of Britain have shown the way again and have demonstrated the very essence of democracy and the democratic process. We have said “enough is enough” and we do not want to be part of this undemocratic and illegal unification of Europe.

Personally, I love Europe and when we joined an ‘economic’ union with the rest of Europe (EEC), I thought, and still do, that it’s a good thing. We did not vote to be in a political union. To have a political union with another or other countries requires a democratic process to be in place which means putting a vote to the electorate.

So, as far as I’m concerned, we were taken into the European Union illegally. I hope this is just the start and other countries such as Holland, Denmark and Sweden follow suit so we can go back like it was in the beginning, and break up this corrupt Bilderberg banking elite.

Angela Merkel wants the total unification of Europe under her fourth something or other which I won’t mention here, so for those of you who voted to Remain this is what you voted for: (hope you’re all sitting comfortably) no individual states, one currency, one central bank, one tax system, one army (haha!), one refugee system, no border control.

And finally, just a few words of encouragement to our American cousin Larry Hampton who seemed to think it fit to offer his “strictly personal comments on the Brexit vote”. Mind your own business.

Peace! And I really do mean that.
