LETTERS: The EU

So the vast majority of our local MPs, perhaps with the exception of Morley and Outwood MP Andrea Jenkyns, want to stay in the EU.

They all seem to say that local businesses will benefit from staying in etcetera. Very admirable. However, not one of them mentions the £350 million we pay the EU each week for the privilege. Nobody has mentioned that we will still not have our border controls, or that all our laws will still come from Brussels, including the dreaded Human Rights Bill, not to mention the money we pay in child benefit to children not living here. Why? Could it be that our MPs have a vested interest in business, or are they hoping to join the gravy train by being an MEP in the future? Craig Whittaker has said the our PM has secured a number of reforms. This is reputed by many, including Mr Cameron’s best friend, Michael Gove. I am not a massive fan of Mr Gove, but I have always found him to be a man of integrity and a speaker of the truth and if I had to choose who to believe, him or good old Dave, I would choose the former.
