Can Colin Watson (Letters, 30 April) name any countries which, denied membership and any of the benefits of membership to the European Union, nevertheless give EU members free access to their own fishing grounds?
If Mr Watson was (through no alleged misconduct of his own) expelled from a club where he’d been a member for 40 years and told he’d have to go through a lengthy process of readmission, would he continue meantime to pay his membership fees and to let them use his home as their clubhouse?
“Gunboat diplomacy” indeed! When politicians and supporters of the No side have to resort to such irrational terms we know they’re struggling. This is probably why in many areas Better Together appears to be increasingly unwilling to send speakers along to local debates to defend its position.
