Hayes puts Brits first

Have your say

Richard Fairman (Lincs Free Press, November 1) may well be a decent man but when someone who has stood in all kinds of elections without notable success criticises someone by whom he has been soundly beaten the accusation of “sour grapes” is bound to stick.

I was glad to see John Hayes’ comments – a three-question referendum is unprecedented, and is likely to produce a pro-Europe result that the majority doesn’t want.

It wouldn’t be worth resigning from the Government over a vote that wasn’t binding, and wouldn’t lead to a referendum anyway. I’m pleased we have an MP who is always forceful and clear in his views on the EU and has always put British interests first.
