Britain is better in Europe, and Europe is better with Britain in it.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron was in Brussels today (Thursday) to meet with coalition partners in the European Parliament to discuss Britain’s place in Europe. He met with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) to talk about Britain's place in Europe and the fight to remain in.
Tim Farron said:
“I've had the opportunity today to talk to Liberal Democrat colleagues from across Europe. Seven of the twenty-eight Heads of Government are liberal democrats and it's been a privilege to have the opportunity to talk to them and encourage them to support the UK renegotiation so we can begin the campaign to keep Britain at the heart of the European Union.
“Something we all agreed on is that Britain is better in Europe, and Europe is better with Britain in it.
“Beyond the renegotiation, what will really decide whether Britain chooses to remain in Europe or not are the bigger, loftier issues.
“Is it better for Britain to be within the biggest, most important economy on earth, or not? Is it better in times of danger and insecurity to be with our friends and allies, or not? And when we are faced with huge global crises like the world economy, the refugee situation and climate, are we better able to deal with those better together or alone?
“The answer to those questions to me are obvious as a liberal, and I am grateful that is the same position held by our Liberal Democrat colleagues across Europe.”
