THE Yorkshire Post continues to bang the drum about a Minister for Yorkshire, or a Yorkshire Parliament, or whatever means of representation; but perhaps you should start mentioning the EU?
The long term aim of EU federalists is to abolish national Parliaments and replace them with ‘regional assemblies’.
The same regional assemblies in fact, that were voted down ten years ago. But when has a democratic ‘No’ vote ever stopped the EU?
So when people like Tom Richmond (The Yorkshire Post, May 24) advocate more representation for our region, perhaps they ought to point out that it is extremely likely that this would lead to the abolition of our national Parliament.
That it would not matter about our ‘voice at Westminster’, since Westminster would no longer exist.
Whose voice would be heard louder in Brussels, a national Parliament or a ‘regional’ one?

THURSDAY’S earthquake, followed by Sunday’s Tsunami, hopefully has given the smug political elite a wake up call. David Cameron is like the man in the street with a black eye. “How did you get that?” a man asks. “Because I was talking instead of listening,” replies the PM.

THEY still don’t get it. The European election results clearly show a big swing to Ukip, so how can Labour and the Lib Dems try to tell us it’s really a protest vote about the economy? No, you blockheads, it’s a vote for the United Kingdom Independence Party, and the clue is in the title. David Cameron should take it as a clear message – get it changed or get us out!
From: Dick Lindley, Altofts, Normanton, West Yorkshire.
THE end of this socialist nightmare that we call the EU is in sight thanks to Ukip and the other Eurosceptic parties throughout mainland Europe. Our congratulations and sincere thanks are due to Nigel Farage and Ukip for demanding and succeeding in getting the main political parties in Great Britain to finally admit this monstrosity is not fit for purpose.
We are absolutely sick of hearing our political leaders say they are unable to prevent this country being overwhelmed by benefit-seeking foreigners because of some moronic law dreamed up in Brussels.
