Only ourselves to blame

‘HOW Long To Wait Until The EU Tells Us The Truth?’ John Strange enquired (WSG Letters, August 8).

But what’s to tell? Everyone knows that we pay £19.2 billion to the EU per year. After EU rebates, grants and spending programmes, that reduces it to ‘only’ £10.8 billion. What is £10.8 billion between friends?

Doesn’t anyone remember that we voted for the torture in 1975? No one forced us. We have no one to blame but our own silly selves, unless, of course, the gods decided to destroy us by, first, making us mad.
