I HAVE just read the article from Richard Drax in the Echo dated 15 March in which he refers to a ‘conspiracy to stop our departure from the EU’.

It would be interesting to hear from him what he actually thinks the benefits of departure from the EU will be for this area in more specific terms than just ‘liberty and sovereignty’.

We will then be able to judge his assessment of the specific benefits as the situation unfolds and make our own decision as to the accuracy of those stated benefits.

Perhaps you could invite him to do this for your newspaper.
