Choose LibDems to help save jobs

Choose LibDems to help save jobs

It is less than 100 days till 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 out of the EU. That would be a disaster, right here in Rutland.

Major local employers have said being in the EU is vital for their success, and a recent survey has found up to six per cent of local businesses could close. For three million workers, 'out of Europe' could mean 'out of work'.

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

Don't wait for a referendum. Use May's elections to say you are In.

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

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