IT is very clear that the promises of Brexit cannot be delivered, they are illusory, and leaving without a deal would be an economic disaster.

Meanwhile the deal that Theresa May has negotiated with the EU satisfies no one, and since it is only a withdrawal deal, we would face another two years at least of this uncertainty while we try to sort out our long-term relationship with our neighbours.

Personally, I have had enough of this, and in the words of the popular song, Let’s call the whole thing off.

We depend on our MP Esther McVey and politicians of all parties to be honest with us.

Now is the time they should speak the truth: We are better off staying as we are, a full member of the EU, which is a partnership of nations that has brought peace and prosperity to 512 million citizens in 28 European countries.
