Wrong, those men died to keep this country free from dictatorship from Europe. The history books record that. Perhaps the EU would rather air brush out that part of British history?

Mr Milroy writes that Britain disengages from the rest of Europe at its peril, that British statesmen realise that Britain cannot risk being excluded from what is happening across the channel. So why didn’t we throw in our lot with Hitler at the time?

He claims that within Europe, Britain can influence decision making. Wrong, once they have full control of this country we will do as we are told, our likes, dislikes and wishes will be of no concern or consequence. We will be under orders.

He also says that outside of the EU Britain’s voicing concerns can and probably will be ignored.

It is time to stick two digits up at the EU.

He finishes by writing that isolation is a recipe for impotence on Europe and the world stage.

The whole world is looking for independence, many parts of China and Russia want independence and be free to do as they wish, as did our dear old ex-Empire members.

Time to kiss the EU good night, goodbye, good luck and good riddance.
