My thoughts on the EU referndum

 I am encouraging David Cameron to hold the EU referendum as soon as possible to avoid long periods of uncertainty that could have a negative impact on our economy and confuse voters. 

Leaving the EU would jeopardise jobs, stagnate any economic recovery and damage the UK’s position internationally – that means we will be isolated from having a real say in key issues like climate change and foreign policy”

‟I will be out across the region campaigning hard in favour of our place in the EU”

“I know people have concerns about the EU but this is such a critical decision it has to be made based on facts not on the scare tactics used by Eurosceptics and anti-Europeans who distort statistics”

“As an MEP I see first-hand how important our place in the EU is and the benefits it brings to the region”
