EU? No thank you

14 August 2015


From Mr Michael King

Sir, — Canon Angela Tilby’s article (Comment, 24 July) is one of a number of pro-EU pieces in your publication of late. I wonder whether the Church of England has now become a committed political supporter of this latter-day Tower of Babel in Brussels.

The EU was conceived in sin by a man (Jean Monnet), who opined that, since people would never agree with his idea of making the European land area into one country, “they will have to be brought into it by stealth. By the time they realise what is happening, it will be too late.”

In other words, deceit was the vehicle by which the EU would be foisted on the people of Europe, who, in the case of this country in particular, were never consulted. The late Sir Edward Heath lied to the British people about the so-called Common Market and the loss of Britain’s sovereignty.

What more proof do people need that this corrupt, shambolic, and useless organisation is bound to fail? In contrast to Canon Tilby, I can hardly wait for this to happen.
