Letter to The Editor
To The Australian
Alas! I looked in vain for some admission by former UK Conservative MP Matthew Parris ('May must champion citizens of the world, not Little Englanders', 30/1) that the idealistic agitation of do-gooders (which he applauds) against the decent and honourable Rhodesian Front government of Ian Smith, contributed to the thirty-eight years' horror of the Mugabe tyranny.
No thanks, Mr Parris, I don't buy your luvvy-luvvy internationalism and misguided claim that 'no nation is sovereign'. I hope that just as President Trump is aiming to strengthen American national integrity, so Theresa May will fight for true British independence and a firm Brexit. Strong national sovereignty is a much better bet for freedom and prosperity than ceding power to entities such as the UN and the IMF.
