The referendum was transparent

Your paper (Sam McBride, June 27) quoted: “Those fears have been exacerbated by the lack of any time for the public to prepare for the outcome” etc

I disagree on that comment.

We all had been given the same time to decide on whether to remain or leave and as I have often stated in the past, there are those who would rather sit in the armchair or spend their time in the pub and leave the voting to someone else then play the blame game when it does not work out.

The referendum was transparent and fair for all and I personally was very confident that leave was going to be the outcome. Those who believe that violence is the answer to failure of a remain outcome are not deserving to be recognised as British subjects as the democratic process was valid and fair.

Those who did not take the opportunity to vote can continue to sit in their armchairs or drown their sorrows in the pub. As for me, I’ll give all the glory to my Lord and Saviour as he is my master and he is in control of all things great and small. Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever.

He will honour those who honour him. Just like the football results that are given out on the television currently: Remain – Lost. Leave – Won.
