The Referendum on Thursday is not on David Cameron & how he is performing as PM, it is not a vote on the Tory party’s record in power, it isn’t even a vote on Cameron renegotiation of our terms on membership.
It is a vote on the future of the UK.
Do we want a future where we are open and welcoming to others (and welcomed by them in return) or one where we live behind barriers, scared of our neighbours, afraid of those different to us?
I am not campaigning for Remain because of Cameron and his sordid little mean spirited “renegotiation”, but in spite of him.
I am not supporting Remain because I support the Tory Government but because being in the EU is our best protection from the worst a Tory government can do.
I am not voting Remain because the EU is perfect but because, in spite of its many faults, it is better to be working with our fellow members to make it better that to be on the outside carping about it and being dictated to by it.
Most of all, I am for Remain because I want a better future for my children & grandchildren, a future where they can live work study & trade freely in and with the other counties in Europe; a future where wars between European nations are studied in history, not a threat in the future; a future where the nations & people of Europe can lead the world in tackling the real problems that face the Earth – Climate Change, Poverty, International terrorism and regulation multi-nationals
Leaving the EU will cast a decades long shadow over this country and blight the future of the next generations. We, those who are nearer the end of their lives that the start, do not have the right to inflict that of our descendants.
On Thursday, vote REMAIN for your children & grandchildren.
