Independence Day is June 23

I write in response to Derek Hardy's excellent letter (March 10) which he closes with, "we are all being asked to vote in the dark". But we are certainly not in the dark regarding sovereignty.

If we stay in the EU we will not regain our sovereignty. Thus, the Brussels bureaucracy will continue to control everything, from the size of the container we can sell olive oil in to how much to goad Russia by their ever-eastward territorial ambitions.

Independence Day is June 23, 2016. I expect it to be made into a public holiday eventually.
