LETTER: How does she back that up?

In her haste to ride roughshod over the referendum result, [Sx Exp 23 Sept] Kelly-Marie Blundell, the new Lib Dem candidate for Lewes, claims that... “The European Union has guaranteed more than 70 years of peace”.

Given that the European Economic Community was not formed until 1958, I’m not sure how she backs up this claim.

In any event, it is as unprovable as the assertion that nuclear weapons have kept the peace.

Perhaps, instead of expending energy on over turning a democratic decision, she will go on to tell us if she shares her predecessor’s support for the bedroom tax.
