Have your say

After reading the article in Lynn News, July 1, about the anti racism vigil held in the wake of Brexit, I felt a need to address this, firstly using Brexit as a negative in this way is actually offensive to the people who voted out in the EU referendum.

It is almost accusing the leave group, including me, that we are racist and it’s open season on anyone who is not British, which is a load of rubbish. As we say in England, sticks and stones will break my bones, but nick names will never hurt me, which fits in with the one comment that was said allegedly about a group of eastern Europeans being verbally abused in a supermarket. Like most people I do not agree with any forms of abuse or acts of racism and I think it has been over-dramatised to make a Labour point, as the police have not seen a rise in the levels of incidents in this county.
