Catherine Bearder, our only Lib Dem MEP, has been interviewed about the consequences of Brexit by the EU Observer.
She doesn’t think that an arrangement similar to Norway’s – being in the European Economic Area but not in the European Union – is achievable.
The deal will be very difficult, because they [other member states] don’t want any other country to join us, I’m convinced of it.
All those in favour of Britain staying in the EU, from small businesses to charities, must start speaking out now before it is too late.
If we lost the vote and we were to leave, from the fisherman to the farmers, their market would be gone, and all exports would face tariffs.
On the Referendum, she claims that it isn’t really about the UK and the EU, but is all to do with the Conservative party. Lib Dems will start campaigning just as soon as they know the date, and will be focusing on the undecided voters.
We want to explain what the EU is and make sure they realise that it is in our long-term interest to be part of this Union.
