Scaremongering was on both sides (Andy Holt)
Whilst not wishing to become embroiled in a tit for tat row with your agricultural editor, I must protest at the one-sided and deeply prejudiced nature of his editorial on the subject of the EU referendum (Landwise 5th August).
I think it was obvious to most of us that there was scaremongering and a level of “economy with the actuality” on both sides of the debate and I suspect that this left many people deeply confused. However, the electorate frequently demonstrates more intelligence than they are credited with by the commentariat.
We live in a democracy and the leave side have it. Let me reassure your editor, there is still plenty of time for this result to be smothered at birth, watered down, kicked into the long grass or even, as he suggests, voted on repeatedly until we get the “right” result in typical EU fashion.
