Letter: Words more telling than those on the Brexit bus


Martin Wolf (“The UK government should stop doing stupid stuff”, Opinion, November 28) makes some valid criticisms of the UK government.

As a Leaver myself, it makes no sense to simply review or revoke up to 4,000 pieces of EU-derived law — some of these laws are based on global rules that, in or out of the EU, we are obliged to follow to enable international trade. What is far more interesting is for the author to describe the 4,000 pieces as forming “the basis for much of today’s national life”. How truthful.

Wolf, unwittingly perhaps, makes a retrospective yet compelling case for Brexit; more so than any words on the side of a big red bus could ever make.
