No deal would save billions, Lynn News letters

Someone once said the greatest threat to democracy is democracy itself, well the debacle in That Place has confirmed that.

The people of the UK voted to leave the EU, many of us, and I am one, breathed a sigh of relief. Now after two world weary years we are no nearer leaving. Like her or loathe her, the PM has tried. Although not a Brexiteer at heart, Theresa May has got what she thinks is the best deal. Of course, the best deal would be no deal, and that would save the UK something like £39 billion. Think where that could go – schools, the health service, police, housing, and still much to spare.

Jeremy Corbyn has never been a fan of Europe, but delights in playing party politics and sabotaging any hope of a deal going through. I dread to think that if there was a general election and he came to power where we would all end up. Remember Comrade Corbyn hails Venezuela as a shining beacon of democracy. Is it? I think we all know the answer to that.

As for the so-called indicative votes they got us nowhere. Every one failed. This alone tells you something about modern politicians. The EU negotiators must also bear blame, they do not want the UK to leave, they need us far more than we need them, that is abundantly clear. Every time the PM has removed one obstacle they have replaced it with two. This God almighty mess proves that the so-called people in power, the very people who represent the voters do not care a jot. Well they should all be ashamed of themselves.
