Still waiting for EU referendum; Letters.

SO the Scots want to break away from the UK - why not? Good luck to them. They already have their own parliament, laws, banknotes and even their own language, so why not be given the power to determine their own destiny? The biggest mistake the leader of the SNP, Alex Salmond made, was not to include the rest of the UK in the vote. I'm sure that had he done so, there would be an overwhelming decision by the majority of us to give support for the Scots, and help them break away from us.

At least Scotland got its referendum. We are still waiting for ours to vote to leave or remain the EU. The Tories promise to give us one if we vote them in again, and Labour says they will not let us have a referendum at all.

Where does that leave us? Must we endure years more of being bullied by the EU with millions more foreigners from countries not yet in the European Union waiting to overwhelm this tiny and already overcrowded island purely for its benefits, health care and housing? The pressure on our services is already buckling under the stress, but the lords and masters in Brussels do not have the slightest care as it will not affect them. In the meantime, what can we do? Emigrate to Scotland - because pretty soon, there will not be enough room for us all here!
