One reader thinks that the leaders of Brexit have failed to deliver the will of the people. What do you think?

The new Brexit Secretary Mr Raab said: “The UK proposal has been designed to respect the outcome of the Referendum and the core principles of the EU.” This is a preposterous statement and an unachievable goal as the two areas are in no way compatible.

Does Mr Raab not understand that the majority of the voters decided to leave the EU for the very reason of those same core principles? These principles are not compatible with UK sovereignty and UK laws and the legislative progress. The EU Courts of Justice are key components in the framework of the EU as is the ability to travel freely within the area.

Subsequent to the Referendum voters were asked for key reasons why they voted Brexit. Loss of sovereignty, loss of effective UK Parliamentary legislature and control of borders were the three key areas where voters believed a federal Europe over exercised their authority at the expense of our independence.

We have acquiesced in our negotiations and been sold out by our timid leaders who remain unconvinced by the Referendum result, the wishes of our voters and seem intent on remaining in the EU under some other arrangement.
