Letter to The Editor - The Brexit Party (more so than the Conservatives) is the freedom party
To The Age Waleed Aly pulls a long bow ("New walls, old prejudices", 8/11) in associating support for Brexit with "believing in the eternal supremacy of the British Empire". Everyone knows that the days of imperial grandeur are long gone, except in profitable period films like "Vanity Fair". What is at issue is the future of a British way of life distinguished by the degree of personal freedom given to subjects of the realm and the legal tradition underpinning that. The Brexit Party (more so than the Conservatives) is the freedom party; and walls, essentially, are beneficial to culture and civilisation, as well as to liberty.
Nigel Jackson, Belgrave
