Supporting the winning side; Letters

I AM not surprised that those who support the UK's continual membership of the EU often fail to provide good arguments.

In the 1975 Referendum, I was Press Officer for the Midlands trade union campaign to leave - and I was told on the doorstep most night that people felt they were powerless to take us out of the EU.

In fact, only 48 per cent of the voters supported remaining in the EU. This time it is different. Of the ten main media groups, two will report the campaign impartially and at least three support Vote Leave.

Most significantly Rupert Murdoch always supports the winning side so that he can say that The Sun won it. He is rarely wrong.
