GET rid of the Brussels Punch and Judy show between Michel Barnier and Theresa May.

Europe is not the enemy, Brussels and its puppet negotiators are.

In the referendum I voted to remain, but now recognise I was wrong.

There is always a price to pay for freedom and I, for one, am willing to accept what comes, as were the many before me who fought for our freedom.

We owe it to them and we owe it to our grandchildren. It’s their inheritance from all of us. British people with a free spirit and courageous, compassionate leadership can achieve great things and overcome any obstacles that face them.

Wake up Europe! Freedom is the greatest value we all thrive on – embrace it and feed your true identity.

Tear down the walls of Brussels, drop the Punch and Judy show and let us all come closer together in a true powerful union of friendship and freedom (The Yorkshire Post, August 8). In the long run, the world will be a much better place.

Great leadership comes from delivering what you truly believe to be positive change and delivering it with courage, compassion and love.

Without expectation of reward, and without the fear of self-sacrifice.

ROGER Backhouse (The Yorkshire Post, August 6) is quite right. His money is safe in the bank. I am not an avid reader of minutes from the meetings of the EU Commission, Council or Parliament.

The serious point remains, however.

We produced nearly all our own medical supplies before we joined the EU but now the NHS spends millions obtaining them from the EU.

It is a disgrace that this is allowed to happen.

Take another example – the car industry. Before we joined the EU a foreign car was a rarity. Now British manufacturers’ share of our own market has fallen to a mere 15 per cent.

I was recently delivering leaflets in a local cul-de-sac.

The five houses had eight 
cars on their drives and seven 
of these were German-made.

There is no doubt in my mind that the market is fixed to the benefit of German manufacturers.

I say we can tackle the situation if we first leave the EU. Remainers seem to have no answer at all.
