I recently stood in the House of Commons and made the case for the EU. I got a lot of flak for my efforts!
As someone brought up in the aftermath of the Second World War and as a former Royal Navy officer, I am instinctively attracted to the EU project’s diplomatic reach and its role in preserving international peace and security. But I appreciate that in times of economic hardship, money sings.
To me, as well as to the wider UK business sector, the economic benefits of sticking with the EU project are indisputable.
