Stand and be counted

SIR - My grandfather's generation fought a bloody war to keep our country out of the hands of Europeans and so did my father's generation. Now it would seem that our generation has to stand up and be counted. Do we wish to lose our identity as a country

SIR - My grandfather's generation fought a bloody war to keep our country out of the hands of Europeans and so did my father's generation. Now it would seem that our generation has to stand up and be counted. Do we wish to lose our identity as a country or do we wish to remain a self-governing sovereign nation?It is a shame, but all three of our main political parties seem to want to sell out to the European Union and to lose the England name and our system of Justice. I am fed up with being told what I can eat, what I can do, how fast I can drive, and what I can say. I want to decide for myself and I have decided to do something about it. I will not give in to the wishes of our biased politicians and so I will be standing at the county elections on June 4 as a UK Independence Party Candidate for Ilfracombe. I think we should leave the EU and go back to governing ourselves, trading with who we like and dropping all the EU regulations, red tape and political correctness. At least I am going to try to do something about it. David Beagley, Ilfracombe.
