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.

    being an EU citizen means I have had the opportunity to work and study abroad – I can also travel freely and British business depends on being IN the EU! The British media gives the EU far too much bad press – we need to focus on the positives!

    I am in Europe because we were conned into membership of a political union when we were told it was a Free Trade Area. £17 bn a year to support unelected beaurocrats would be better spent on supporting British Industry.

    Europe gives us all more opportunities to work, study, travel and learn. Europe broadens our horizons!

    the EU paid for my PhD, helped fund my Lab and through scholarships, educational grants and scientific funding gave me a wealth of experience that helped me get my first job!

    As someone who runs a Foreign Exchange company based in the City with over 3000 business clients from across Europe, it makes sense that the majority of City workers want to stay in the EU.

    The City is a great British success story: in 2011 the UK had a £17.6bn trade surplus with the rest of the EU in financial services. The EU is a huge market for us, and it’s only going to get bigger: opening up the services market across Europe – something the British Government has been at the top table pushing for – is a multibillion pound opportunity for British businesses like mine.

    We cannot possibly leave the EU and hope to keep all of our current business, let alone expand the huge market for British firms. It took over 10 years of negotiations and 120 different agreements for the Swiss to get access to the single market and their financial services sector is still excluded. That would be a disaster for my company, for the City of London, and for the country as a whole.
