Sir The article by John Blundell (Washington still blind to true nature of the EU, 8/9 January) is the most erudite and honest condemnation of the EU that I have ever read in a national publication.
One can understand that distant Washington fails to recognise the menace of the EU. Those of us in Britain who have daily to watch the EU wash away our democratic self-government already feel the autocratic/bureaucratic rule that has spawned continental dictators in the past.

Mr Blundells article can only help open the eyes of anyone in the business world who has yet to be convinced that the EU is bad for democracy and Britains economic future.

Sir It is hardly surprising that Washington is still blind to the tru
