I WOULD like to respond to the letter writer who was critical of UKIP.

Without UKIP and Nigel Farage in particular we would not have had last year’s referendum.

When we leave the EU in less than two years we will be self-governing again, and free to negotiate deals with America as well as our friends in the Commonwealth. How good is that?

The alternative would have been that we would have ended up a small part of a super state with no say whatsoever over the running of our own country.

Apart from the political elite do not know anyone who would want that.
