I AM getting extremely tired of people going on about overturning the Brexit vote.

This was a democratic vote, just like a general election.

Do we complain if the candidate we vote for does not get in? No, we have to accept it.

We had to accept the vote back in 1975. We didn’t turn round and say we wanted another vote. We just got on with our everyday lives.

We have had 40 years of the EU and it has gradually got worse and worse for the UK.

We pay far too much money into this bottomless pit.

Back in June 1975, we were never fully told what it would mean to join the Common Market.

My husband and I never voted to join. We didn’t have a crystal ball, but we knew it was not going to be as good as we were led to believe and we are still of the same opinion at the ages of 65 and 67 years old.

To all of you who voted to remain in the EU, instead of moaning about losing the vote, you should pull together with the rest of us.

We were a great country once and we can be great again if we all pull together instead of nit picking over everything.

Theresa May is our Prime Minister, let her get on with her job.
