  1. I am the secretary / coordinator of the Harrogate district Britain Stronger in Europe group ( we even have a pro Europe Tory MP ) Think what you are doing is excellent particularly telling people what the benefits of being in the EU are and what harm BREXIT will do to future generations . Don’t think enough of this is being said loudly enough . I’ve just had a letter in the Yorkshire Post saying just that . Am appalled by the lies and half truths peddled by the other side . Their latest offering was hilarious : there are 35,000 potholes in UK and your money is being used to build bridges like this in Greece . Can we take them seriously ? Afraid so . We must get OUR message across more strongly !

  2. Alison, That is a great line when they talk about ‘our money’ going to the EU for other countries to use…. I did some analysis on ‘value for money’ … the conclusions are almost unbelievable.

    PUBLIC SERVICES:
    http://www.cipfa.org/cipfa-thinks/eu-referendum/introduction-to-the-report (be careful in reading this, because they use the wrong numbers on the economy … they misrepresent LSE in saying that “The Treasury released a dossier in 2016 that estimated the UK’s GDP growth would reduce in the event of a Brexit. They predicted a loss of 6.2% by 2030 or £4,300 for each household. Research from the London School of Economics (LSE) in 2016 estimated this figure to be lower, between 1.3% to 2.6%.” Those numbers refer to static estimates which do not consider the dynamic effects of trade on productivity. Factoring those in, LSE found that “our dynamic estimates of the cost of Brexit indicate a GDP loss of 6.3% to 9.5% in the case of moving from the EU to EFTA … Treasury estimates are at the lower end of this range.” – http://cep.lse.ac.uk/pubs/download/brexit04.pdf ).

    DEMOCRACY:
    I haven’t come across any independent reports on democracy within the EU, but ostensibly (and I use that word with awareness) the EU is more democratic than the UK in that we elect our MEPs under a system of proportional representation – with the effect that more of our citizens are represented at EU level than at UK level (UKIP and the Green Party between them got 16% of the vote at the last UK general election, yet less than half a percent of UK MPs). You might find the following interesting:
