IT appears Mr Vassie (A Three-pronged attack over Brexit, Letters, June 8) thinks Britain cannot be great outside the EU.

Well, I have a question for him. What does he think made Britain great? As he probably won’t know the answer, it is pride. Our pride has been taken away by the EU. We do not have pride in ruling ourselves because we are ruled by others. When we leave the EU we will get our pride back.

Reference his remarks and Keith Isaac’s remarks, it is not common sense to say that those who voted to leave are responsible for the chaos of Brexit. It is people like you, Mr Vassie, and the MPs in government who, because you lost the democratic vote, opted to cause chaos and undermine the Government’s every move.

You and your lot must be very proud of yourselves.
