In THE report of the arrests of a gang of drug smugglers (The Yorkshire Post, October 8), it was said the six Dutch conspirators were arrested with the aid of European Arrest Warrants.
It was claimed that if the UK leaves the EU without a security deal, this tool will no longer be available to UK law enforcers.
This is presented that it as though it would just be a UK problem.
But do they not consider how the continental forces will function efficiently and quickly without access to the UK’s criminal data and surveillance records?
Perhaps the reciprocal exchange of information between the UK and the EU forces of law and order could be added to the list of deals outlined in Lord Peter Lilley’s essay (The Yorkshire Post, October 7), which will be in place without fuss upon the eventual Brexit.

BREXIT should have happened there and then, directly after the result of the referendum which was to Leave.
A group of Remain politicians, headed by Theresa May, were not prepared to get behind that democratic decision, and to work to make the decision to leave work.
None of the division of the people of this country would ever have happened.
We still live in a democratic country and democratic decisions must be adhered to, or we might as well capitulate.

WELL I thought I’d heard of most Brexit scares so I was taken by surprise to read (The Yorkshire Post, October 9) that there might be a shortage of loo rolls due to our exit from the EU.
It looks like we’ll have to go back to cutting up squares of newspapers and threading string through to hold the pieces together.
At least it will be a good example of recycling!

If THE supply of toilet rolls dries up with a no-deal Brexit it will at least give me an excuse to buy The Guardian.
