In last week’s Epping Forest Guardian, Paul Donovan writes that we should have another vote on whether to remain in the EU. In common with most, if not all Remainers, he does not appear to understand the situation. We have invoked Article 50, which means we will leave. There is a degree of flexibility about when we leave, but none about whether. Mr Donovan may believe that, having left, we should apply to rejoin, in which case we would have to accept the Schengen rules on free movement of people and adopt the euro, as that is required of all new applicants. If he believes in that, he should say so, not try to mislead your readers about options which do not exist.
