Letter on Europe in the Harborough Mail

EUROPE: Support us for the sake of jobs

It is less than 100 days now until the European elections, and this time it really matters.

If anti-European politicians and parties get their way, the message sent to businesses and investors worldwide will be that Britain wants to be out of the European Union.

That would be a disaster - right here in Harborough.

Major local employers in the East Midlands have said being in the European Union is vital for their success. For three million workers, "out of Europe" could mean "out of work".

With the Conservatives openly flirting with exit and Labour seemingly running scared of the debate, only the Liberal Democrats are prepared to stand up and say "Keep Britain in Europe".

Please don't wait for a referendum. Use May's elections to say you are in.

In Liberal Democrat Bill Newton Dunn, we in the East Midlands have one of Britain's most experienced Euro-MPs of any party, who, for many years, has fought hard and successfully for local East Midlands people in Europe.

Support the Liberal Democrats for the sake of British jobs, British business and Britain's influence in the world.

Mary Twidell, Rutland and Melton Liberal Democrats
