To The Editor,
The decision that Nottingham will not be able to bid to become the European Capital of Culture 2023 just about sums up the pettiness of the EU.
The city was one of five across the UK which has now been told it cannot compete in the competition due to Brexit.
This is despite previous reassurances Britain's vote to leave the EU would not affect it hosting the 2023 contest.
I'm afraid this is a vindictive and petty decision - we are not anti-European and we will still be part of Europe!
Margot Parker, MEP for Nottingham and UKIP deputy leader
