POOR Adam Sims! Life isn’t fair, is it? Especially when you consider that the Remain campaign (The Yorkshire Post, September 29) had the weight of all the Government and its various departments behind it plus the whole of the EU Ministers and even the President of the United States!

In all the many years I’ve written to him, I never got an answer. Surrounded by his coterie of cronies, focus groups and yes-men, he told us ‘we’re all in it together’– but didn’t include anyone outside his circle.
