Well we are almost there now, so time for me to concentrate or why I think being a member of the EU is better than leaving.
Peaceful coexistence…… As in any relationship there will be disagreements, there will be areas were individuals will have different views, there will be a need to compromise, but it is all worthwhile if we do not end up killing one another.
RAF veteran and NHS campaigner Harry Leslie Smith said: “Britain is stronger in Europe because it reflects the values my generation fought for in Europe during the Second World War.”
D-Day veteran and former Royal Marine Patrick Churchill warned: “If it breaks or we are not in that union, then countries will fall apart. The only solution is to bind together, hold together, there we find strength.
RAF veteran David Meylan said: “We sacrificed many, many men in both world wars and this was to establish a peaceful and a prosperous union. We can’t sacrifice that now.”
Field Marshal Lord Bramall, former chief of the defence staff, said: “We would be going backwards, not forwards in what we set out to cure after the terrible tragedies of the Second World War.”
These are the words of the men who survived the second world war, I wonder what the 14,600,000 from western Europe who did not survive would have said, along with their loved ones and children.
