LETTER: About time we left the EU

We have just passed the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.

It is said that this is the most important document in the world, being the cornerstone of virtually all democratic governments.

Yet it is my understanding that British governments, the home of the Magna 
Carta, chose to ignore this document when signing the many treaties which tie us to the EU and take away our rights as guaranteed by the Magna Carta. That being so, surely we are not bound by these EU treaties? Furthermore, all those prime ministers who signed EU treaties knowing that in doing so we were breaking basic laws laid down 800 years ago, must surely be traitors to Britain and it’s people.

It is long overdue that we left the EU before any more of our rights are signed away
