Anti-EU stance fails to impress

Published 21/05/2013 | 04:20

YOUR letters against continuing membership of the EU have three characteristics in common: Fear – assumption that leaving will do us harm; Nonsense – the EU 'kept the peace' (Nato did that); and Abuse of Opponents – they are 'xenophobes'. Such 'arguments' are no substitute for a democratic vote.
