UNDEMOCRATIC: Sir Keir did his 'level best' to overturn Brexit result, according to our correspondent.

JOHN Studholme (The Cumberland News, letters, May 13) states that ‘people are not happy (with Brexit)’ on the basis of a very small survey.

A pandemic, followed by rising world fuel prices, followed by a war in Ukraine is hardly going to give an easy ride, economically, to any political party. And the situation can only get tougher.

I never see any political party through rose-tinted spectacles, but I am grateful that we have a government that got a move on with vaccinations.

As to the economy, I took on my first mortgage when Labour was in power and the interest rate for that first month was nearly 18 per cent.

It is good that we live in a democracy and, every five years, people can re-assess... but time is not yet up and much can happen.

Come the next election, quite a few of us will not forget that Sir Keir Starmer did his level best to overthrow the result of the EU referendum – so much for his respect for democracy.
