Dear Mrs Donelan
We hope that this short message will be powerful enough to help persuade you as regards your forthcoming vote on Brexit.
From the beginning my wife and I have studied deeply, and followed thoroughly, the problems of Brexit.
What matters most of all is the longterm future of Britain.
Let’s overlook the short term problems—endlessly raised by prejudiced, often selfish, people and insecure politicians—which can be overcome.
Longterm, Britain will forever benefit from not being tied to the EU.
We love Europe.
We do not like the EU——which may largely self-destruct, long term, anyway.
Please vote against Mrs May’s ill-judged proposals which provide a bad deal.
Please help lead the nation to a no-deal conclusion which in all respects amounts to a WTO deal such as the USA, Canada and China prosper by. Britain can too.
Take the opportunity of going down in local history as being a true British patriot voting with Britain’s best future at heart.
