Brexit is a feeble excuse for any failure to share police information on criminals across EU – Yorkshire Post Letters

What will happen on Brexit this week?

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.

Brexit continues to divide political and public opinion.

This is presented that it as though it would just be a UK problem.

But do they not consider 
how the continental forces

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!
