Take back control of your destiny.

I write to call on the people of Britain to take back control of their destiny, for themselves and their grandchildren. The EU referendum is a once in a generation opportunity to do this.

When we joined the Common Market in the 1970s very few people in the UK understood they were handing over sovereignty to a un-elected commission in Brussels.

In 1975 we voted to remain a member of a trading union.

Fast forward 40 years and the Common Market has morphed into the EU, a political union which seeks ever greater political and fiscal integration together with expansion of its members and borders. They aim subtly to take more and more control over aspects of our daily lives, drive forward with the euro zone project (ask the Greeks how that's going for them) and are talking to Turkey and others about fast track admission. If you're not happy with that, take the opportunity the referendum gives us to take control once more.Gary Briscombe Pontprennau, Cardiff
