Letter to The Editor - Honouring of the clear verdict of the 2016 referendum
To The Age Discussion of Brexit needs to be based on a clear grasp of priorities ("Leak reveals no-deal chaos fear", 19/8). Short-term disruption of lifestyle for many is less significant than three other factors which show that Boris Johnson and his Conservative government should be supported and Remainers yield the field gracefully. These are, in order of importance, the regaining of its sovereignty by Britain, the restoration of complete legal and judicial independence to the British people (meaning freedom from the quasi-totalitarian European Court of Human Rights) and the honouring of the clear verdict of the 2016 referendum (thus allowing genuine democracy to succeed).
