Seeking clarity as EU spinning begins
Are EU in or are EU out? The campaigns to win your vote in the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union have started in earnest. National figures such as Michael Gove and Boris Johnson oppose Prime Minister David Cameron – potentially launching their own bids to become the next Tory leader.
Ashford MP Damian Green and Folkestone and Hythe MP Damian Collins have both decided to back the Prime Minister and the campaign to stay in.
Their campaign has already taken to the High Street in Ashford to try to build support, despite David Cameron’s apparent struggles in his negotiations in Brussels.
Those campaigning to leave the union have also encountered some early difficulties in trying to accommodate figures across the political spectrum, ranging from South East MEP Nigel Farage to former Bradford MP George Galloway.
No doubt we will be subjected to countless claims and counterclaims by either side of the argument over the next four months.
For our readers this may well be a grim and tiresome prospect to look forward to.
But the significance of the decision by voters on Thursday, June 23, will be the first time voters have had their say on Britain’s membership since 1975.
The Express team will be doing its utmost to sift through the spin and nonsense to bring you some clarity.
