Great Britain?

Dear Chris, Since 1945 Britain has led the way in Europe in establishing the rule of law. We have used our influence to create the UN and the International Court of Human Rights. Now we are being led by people who are obsessed with their own view. They are mendacious and do not understand the value of compromise. 

Our neighbours in Europe and the USA are appalled by the reckless behaviour of our ‘so – called’ government.Several former prime ministers are also aghast. They can see that if they break international law over Northern Ireland, the peace we have enjoyed in Europe could be torn apart with war ships patrolling trade routes and fishing grounds as trade wars flare up again and sectarian violence returning to Ireland.Our neighbours in America, with so many Irish connections, will refuse to deal with us. 

We urge you to vote against these unlawful acts – and remember the values you learned  in school and at home as you were growing up. Our word is our bond. 

Best wishes, 
Rob and Linda Bygrave

Vote Leave Breaks the Law

Dear Sir, [A letter to the BBC]

All over the country there has been an all party agreement to cease campaigning today in respect of Jo Cox.  Vote Leave leaflets were being distributed today at 1.00pm in our town of Sherborne, Dorset. This callous disregard is typical of what has been happening in our area. Last week the A352 road between Dorchester and Sherborne had many Vote Leave posters along its length. The posters had no name or address on them – which is illegal. They were also placed in very dangerous places, on bends, road signs, and verges close to the road. I have photographs of them. This is also illegal and clearly very dangerous. They are on record of wanting to leave The EU because of too much regulation – the ‘red tape’ that impedes their activities. In The UK this is known as ‘common decency’, and ‘the law’.

Yours sincerely, Rob Bygrave
