Hitting back at claims Dear Editor, LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.

I would briefly like to respond to Ronnie Wright's latest letter [Advertiser, January 29], even though it really isn't deserving of one.

Mr Wright notes that, in order to "attack" his letter, I had to hark back to the 1700s.

Considering he made the claim about a so-called successful 300-yearold union I might point out that it was he who started the debate there; and it's hardly my fault if our history is so disturbing and not the rosy picture he wishes us to believe.

He then followed this with bizarre claims which somehow suggest that being part of a European union somehow was incompatible with our ancestors (mine included) fighting Germany more than a century ago.

He then goes on to make the tired old British Nationalist claim that wanting to have a normal, independent country is anti-English.

When your level of debate drops to that level there really is no point in continuing.

Unfortunately, my comments in respect of this claim aren't fit for publication in a respectable newspaper.
