We’ll be proud nation again

Dear Sir,

I cannot believe that Mr Taylor [Letters 11 April] still does not understand what is meant by “escaping the shackles of the EU”. Leaving the EU will, for example, give us the ability to make our own laws and regulations, to control our borders and fishing rights, to trade with whom we choose as well as restoring our democracy, freedom and the right to be in control of our own destiny. I agree that the escape might not be easy but this is the democratic will of the British people. However I am confident that we will, as in the past, rally round to once more become a successful, proud, independent nation befriending, cooperating and trading with the entire world including the remaining countries of the EU.

Yours faithfully,

David Ramsbotham
