Head held high; You Say

IN REPLY to M Mordant's letter (Lest We Forget) ECHO, May 28, I was one of the Liverpudlians who voted for UKIP and my head is held very high.

For the past 40 years, successive governments have ignored the British public. We were never consulted on any major decision, so when Mr Farage and UKIP gave their views, I agreed with a lot of them, so I showed the three main parties what I felt by voting for UKIP and didn't we give them a fright? Lastly, and most importantly, neither M Mordant nor anyone else ever need remind me of the great sacrifices made by my countrymen and women in two world wars.

My family and I were in both world wars. My grandfather was badly gassed in the first war and never regained full health again, and my great uncle was killed in 1918 aged 28.

From the age of seven until I was 13, me and my family lived through World War II with all the fear and horror that entailed.

We lived five streets from the Dock Road, so we endured very heavy bombing. My two uncles served their country for five long years, one in the army, one in the Royal Navy. I remember every day of my life, I will never forget.

Mrs M Lane, Wavertree
