Refugees and migrants wait in a queue as the sun rises, to receive food distributed by non-governmental organisation after their arrival from the eastern Greek islands to the Athens port of Piraeus.

ACCORDING to the Office of National Statistics, 560,000 people came to the UK to 
work or study in the year ending June 2015 so it’s no wonder controlling our borders is the main priority for the majority of people in the UK. Europe’s most densely populated country is England.

If we stay in the EU, you have to accept free movement of people. If we come out of the EU, we will be able to control our borders.

ON migration controls, it is unlikely that the French would renege on our agreement with them. If word got out that there was an easy access to the UK, there would be a column of migrants across France.

As Haltemprice and Howden David Davis MP points out, even if France declined to co-operate, the cost of implementing our own measures would be small in relation to the amounts that we currently pay the EU.

FAR from being “a leap in to the dark”, Brexit would be stepping into the light of a free, truly democratic future liberated from the chains of excessive regulation and bureaucracy to become a low-regulation low-taxation honey pot for business.

I WILL be brief. I utterly hate, loathe and despise everything the European Union stands for and does. And it grieves me when semi-intellectual poseurs like Wakefield MP Mary Creagh prattle on (The Yorkshire Pos t, February 25). I will always choose freedom. Others can choose their own road to hell.

DAVID Cameron should remember the old maxim: “You can fool all of the people some of the time and you can fool some of the people all of the time but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.” Let me tell you Mr Cameron: “You ain’t fooling me any of the time.”

From: Nigel Boddy, Fife Road, Darlington.

SIR Jeremy Heywood, the Cabinet Secretary, has stated that those Ministers campaigning to leave the EU, cannot use their special advisers or any Government resources. Let David Cameron, George Osborne and their rich friends use their own money too.
