• It is in the UK’s political, economic and social interests to remain in the EU
• Future generations have the best prospects as citizens of a free and united Europe
• The EU embodies the values that we recognize as British values, including democracy, justice, tolerance, collaboration, human rights and the rule of law
• No organization or country is perfect, but each of us is stronger when we are united.
Why would leaving the EU matter?
• It matters to our economy – most experts believe the UK is heading for a self-made economic tragedy, with less investment, lower incomes, fewer jobs and less money for the NHS etc.
• It matters to our country – the future of the UK is in peril: with pressures for an independent Scotland and united Ireland. If this happens our standing in the world will decline
• It matters to our politics – vast amounts of new UK-based bureaucracy will be required to replace EU laws, and there will be no time to deal with other pressing issues, like the NHS, education etc.
• It matters to us as consumers and workers, and to the environment – European standards that protect us will be weakened in a desperate effort to find new markets
• It matters to our future – Our young people will have fewer job prospects, our universities will no longer lead in science.
But it’s not too late
• We should demand the right in 2019 to reconsider the outcome of the referendum
• To prepare for this, we must keep up the pressure on MPs and MEPs to prevent the government committing an unforgivable act of national self-harm that will affect us all.
