All these who want to remain in the European Union should perhaps, read the second verse of the Robert Burns song, The Dumfries Volunteers. It goes thus.

O let us not like snarling dogs,

In wrangling be divided

Till,slap! come in a foreigner

And with a cudgel decide it!

Be Britain still to Britain true,

Among ourselves united;

For never but by British hands

Must British wrongs be righted.

Burns was not just a great poet and songwriter, he must have also been a great visionary.
