Under 100 Days to stop UKIP

With less than days to go before the European Elections, the Liberal Democrats are the only party campaigning to keep Britain IN Europe.

Today, Nick Clegg has warned that if UKIP wins and takes us out of Europe, it would wreck the recovery and risk 3 million British jobs.

The Conservatives are flirting with exit from Europe and the Labour party cannot pluck up the courage to speak up. Only the Liberal Democrats are fighting to keep Britain IN Europe.

We're IN for the sake of 3 million jobs. We're IN so that we can work with our neighbours to tackle cross-border crime and fight climate change. We're IN because we know that Britain can only stand tall in the world if we stand tall in our own back yard.

Tell us why you are IN. 

The more people who shout about why they think Britain is better off IN Europe, the more chance we have of stopping UKIP.

Why are you IN?

    Even though we are a small island we have a powerful voice. We are leaders in business, in innovation and in altruism and we can use our strong voice to influence others. As part of Europe we are part of much more than just jobs and travel opportunities, we are world leaders. Even if none of our European friends vote for us at Eurovision.

    Because the devil you know is better then the one you don’t. The EU needs to reform to stop wasting so much money, but it does give increased trading provision and opportunities that wouldn’t be available outside the EU.

    I used to be a Labour voter all my life until B(liar) signed us up for Bush’s oil wars. It was Gordon Brown who endorsed the banking collapse in the first place, and left our coalition government with no finances left to work with from the very outset – doh! The LibDems have fought tooth-&-nail to pass 75% of what they proposed in their election manifesto – so it’s no wonder that Cameron & Milliband have sought to discredit them at every given opportunity. I STILL AGREE WITH NICK!

    I am IN because although we are an island, we can’t isolate ourselves! We need Europe and Europe needs us: commercially, politically, socially and economically.

    I’m out because I don’t believe a word he’s saying.. I’m out because the EU political union wastes money, which could be spent on improving jobs and lives, I’m out because a consumer will always be king, they will always spend money on anything they want to, I’m out because I’m not naive and know the EU = loss of sovereignty and no more democracy, I’m out because that leads to having less say in the way your surroundings, an the people who make the decisions are no where near your environment, leaving them out of touch and inept.

    I want opportunities for my daughter. I would like her to be able to study in other countries and benefit from a wider job market. Should it ever be necessary, I would also like her to benefit from specialist medical expertise and services across the EU.

    I’m IN Europe because membership is a major factor underlying the peaceful co-existence of all the countries in the EU. The bonds are strong; the risk of another European war is very slight. We talk to one another and so understand our needs, which are often remarkably similar.

    I’m in Europe because a strong Europe is in the interest of all countries. UK as apart of Europe is in europes interest as much as ours. In Europe stops wars and helps every economy.

    Because the 21st century is not the time for petty nationalism, because we can achieve more together than apart, because what unites us is far greater than what divides us.

    Because being IN is the only sensible way to save jobs, strengthen our trading links with our partners, and maintain free movement for our students, pensioners, workers and researchers who enable the European Union to grow stonger and more competitive in the world. That is what I want for my daughter’s future.

    I want to be out not in. Because Europe is a cash cow for politicians and business leaders and betrays the working classes.

    I’m in Europe because I like Europe and the Europeans and I would like to have cordial relations and good trade with them. In 1975 I voted to remain in the EEC (European Economic Community) because I saw it as a free community like EFTA. I thought free trade with our European Partners was a good thing – I still do. A major part of the conditins that got my “yes” vote was the PROMISE that our sovereignty was not at risk. I certainly did not vote for my country to be subsumed into a State called Europe and to be ruled by unelected people in Brussels who clearly have no interest in the well-being of the UK or its people.

    Politicians constantly say that X million jobs are related to Europe but never explain why they would be lost if we left the EU and had a free trade agreement as was described in 1975. Until I am convinced that our costly (£50m per day net) membership of the EU is to our advantage, I shall continue to be, NOT a Euro(pe)-Sceptic but an EU-Sceptic.

    Although I would be happy for you to do so, I have no doubt that you will not publish this on the website.

    Because I put the future of the our economy above and beyond petty nationalism; because the EU needs reform, and we’d have no chance of reforming it from outside; because business and environmental issues transcend national boundaries; and because although I love Iceland, I don’t want us to have the same financial problems. We live in an increasingly globalised and globalising world, where many companies are economically larger than many countries, and isolationism could never be the answer.

    Our past was in Europe and our future is in Europe, culturally, economically and socially. It would be a kind of national suicide to leave. It would cost us jobs and ruin our relationship with our nearset neighbours. To leave would be a sign to everyone that we were looking back not forwards and would confirm the image of little England. To leave is simply not practical in today’s world.
