IN CASE ANYONE NEEDS A REMINDER WHY WE ARE FIGHTING TO REMAIN IN THE EU......

We must put the case for Remain and do it repeatedly in the public domain

by Nigel Jones | Mon 14th October 2019 (extract from Lib Dem Voice)

We must put the case for remain and do it repeatedly.

  1. No more years of hassle, expense and uncertainty for business in relationships with the closest, biggest market in the world.

  2. No loss of government income to run our public services.

  3. No worry about losing funds for skills training, while continuing access to a pool of people as necessary to run our public services.

  4. No need for time, effort and expense to negotiate different regulations with loads of other countries that must be approved by all 164 nations in the World Trade Organisation.

  5. No need to worry about more risks to our employment rights, jobs, working conditions and human rights.

  6. The strength within Europe to stand up to the might of the USA, China, India, Russia and Brazil and against exploitation by multi-national corporations.

  7. The ability to influence the EU and make it better, rather than be on the sidelines affected by their power.

  8. The ability to do more to tackle world issues, such as the environment, from a position of strength rather than feeling alone.

  9. Continued free access to vital information on criminals who might come here or escape from us.

  10. No further risk to peace in Northern Ireland and being at the table should any risk to peace arise across Europe.

"So, let's see all remainers joining in this battle to demonstrate why we should remain. There are, of course, other reasons than the ones above and they are not only from the perspective of economics, but that of togetherness in the world; we need to demolish the feeling so many people now express of being oppressed by the EU and therefore wanting their freedom which they imagine leaving will bring".
