July 8: Greek people are taking democratic stand against the EU

Have your say

From: Dick Lindley, Altofts, Normanton, West Yorkshire.

DEMOCRACY has spoken with a clear and overwhelming voice and the brave Greek people have rejected the savage demands made by unelected bureaucrats, who run this disastrous mess we call the EU and their leader Mrs Merkel.

We all know that this tragedy is the result of previous Greek government incompetence, but to punish the present democratically-elected Greek government and its people for past mistakes is outrageous. These past mistakes of which I write, were compounded by the IMF and the ECB, both of whom knowingly continued to finance the failing Greek economy without regard for how those loans should or could possibly be repaid.

Their actions remind me of the payday loan sharks operating in the UK.

The only good thing to come out of this whole sad affair is, that now at least, British Europhiles must finally realise that the EU and its organisations are anti-democratic institutions seeking total control over the whole of Europe, in ways that are reminiscent of the dictatorships in the 1930s, but this time they are using their economic rather than their military might.

It is rather ironic and poignant that this should be happening to Greece, the birthplace of democracy.

Now seems like a good time for the UK to depart this vale of tears and take control of our own country again, before we also get clobbered by the bully boys in the EU.

From: Michael J Robinson, Berry Brow, Huddersfield.

I REMEMBER Gordon Brown telling us all that he had saved the world at the time of the 2007 financial crash.

Who better, then, to be sent without delay to Greece to sort out their comparatively minor mess?

From: Terry Duncan, Greame Road, Bridlington.

GEORGE Osborne is promising, it is reported, to give relief to bereaved families by raising 
the inheritance tax level threshold to £1m.

How many ordinary families throughout the UK have 
parents owning property 
worth anywhere near that 

House prices across the UK, including Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the rest of the North are well below £300,000 on average.

What he is doing is sneaking in favours for the more wealthy, sons and daughters who live in such privileged property.
