I WOULD recommend Emilie Knight (Letters, March 13) and all her other would-be EU Remainers study the recent reports concerning the rioting in Rotterdam and have a rethink on wanting Britain to remain in the EU.

I found the pictures of the 1,000 plus rioters, with the sea of Turkish flags being waved, quite disturbing as they gave an illustration of how countries in Europe are being gradually engulfed by thousands of migrants from other member EU states.

There is little doubt that Angela Merkel and her open borders largesse has given rise to the way European countries are gradually losing their identities.

No doubt there are many other people, like myself, who don’t want Britain to be “just another member of the EU”. We want Britain to pursue its own way in the world and don’t want the open borders and all the other idiocy the EU would inflict on us.

Doubtless Ms Knight will say we must stay in the EU and welcome all and sundry from this failing colossus.

Britain has, historically, given succour to people from other countries in times of need.

The Kindertransport of 1938 to 1940 when Britain took in thousands of Jewish children who would otherwise have been murdered by the Nazis, and then the 20,000 plus Hungarian refugees escaping the Soviets in 1956.

All those people integrated with their new host country. Judging from those Rotterdam pictures the migrants don’t want to integrate.
