Letter from the Archbishop of Canterbury

Sir,

The Archbishop of Canterbury’s declaration that he supports a ‘remain’ vote on the basis that Britain ‘belongs in the world’ appears somewhat confused and to a degree perverse.

It is precisely because the UK needs to get back into the world, rather than being locked into a declining and economically precarious European Union that the Liberal Party is campaigning for a ‘leave’ vote.

The stereotype that those who wish to leave the EU are insular ‘little Englanders’ could not be further from the truth, rather we are worried that we will end up ‘little Europeans’.

Given that the Archbishop of Canterbury is an Eton and Cambridge educated former oil executive it’s perhaps unsurprising he has lept to the defence of the metropolitan elite from which he, like Cameron and Osborne, has sprung.

Yours faithfully,
