    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Andy Moore, OBE for services to MoD, Chair of Newbury Lib Dems

    The UK has been secure and has prospered because it has never been

    insular; remaining part of the EU means this will continue, to the

    benefit of everyone in the UK and reassurance of many both inside and outside

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?



    ~*~

    From Tony Vickers, Lt Col (Ret'd) Newbury

    The world is a wonderful but dangerous place, and European Civilisation

    has helped make it what it is. I believe that only by Europeans working together

    to influence world affairs can we British achieve a prosperous and safe future for our children and grandchildren.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Julian Swift Hook, Mayor, Newbury

    We are undoubtedly stronger together with our EU colleagues. The

    days of Empire are ancient history, the Commonwealth is little more than a name.

    To imagine the UK can build a trading relationship with the rest of the world equivalent

    to those we currently enjoy without complying with EU regulations is fantasy.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Judith Bunting, Parliamentary Spokesperson, Newbury

    Unemployment will swell to more than two million if Britain votes to

    leave the EU. Many large employers, like those in our area, will reduce

    operations or relocate- and those remaining will not be able to pick up the slack.

    In contrast, as part of Europe, young people have easy access to travel, work and study abroad.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Sue Farrant, Newbury and West Berks Liberal Democrats, Chair

    I'm voting IN because I believe that co-operation is in the United Kingdom's

    best interests. Working with our European neighbours makes us stronger,

    safer and more prosperous than we would be alone.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Sarah Lowes, Newbury

    Every Remembrance Sunday, I am reminded that the mantel of "lest we forget" is

    passing to my generation who grew up outside the shadow of two world wars. For me,

    remaining #INtogether is a powerful way of saying we have not forgotten those

    sacrifices. Europe is far stronger working together than tearing itself apart.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?

    ~*~

    From Martha Vickers, Town Councillor, Newbury

    We must look to the future and not the past. An obsession with

    nationalism, p
    ower and control is not the way to maintain Peace and Prosperity;

    History
    testifies to this. By remaining in the European Union we can

    work more
    effectively on major issues such as Climate Change.
