Sir: While sorting out the democratic deficit in Europe (leading article, 14 August), could we also sort out the honesty deficit? That means politicians being open about what the EU is, and where it is going, and what the ultimate plan is; rather than pretending it is just a free- trade area and then gradually changing it into something else. It means treating people like grown-ups able to make decisions about their own lives; and it means actually listening to them if they say, "No thank you, this isn't what I want."
