What's left acfter

Let me be clear. When the vote on the EU comes before Parliament, my vote will reflect the overwhelming result in Cambridge – to remain.

- to maintain peace and stability in Europe

- to protect the economy by being part of a large trade market

- to maintain UK influence – in EU, UN Sec Council, with the US

Britain benefits from the single market. European laws help strengthen workers’ rights and protect the environment. I would like to see Europe develop a co-ordinated and humane policy on refugees in which Britain should play a part. It is essential that we remain in the EU.

I believe that Europe is under threat from Russia and parts of the Middle East. We are irrevocably part of Europe and the UK can be the force for ensuring success in countering this over the coming years. This comes with a cost. However as in the 1930s we cannot rely on “I’m all right Jack” to get us through – the consequences of pretending not to be a part of Europe are too depressing to consider.

EU provides stability and solidarity in difficult times; it strengthens societies to find common ground and live by comon values; the reasons the EU was created remain with us today.

We need to protect our Human Rights, which the Tories would like to abolish.

I believe that the Little England concept is odious and we need to reach out to our neighours, to be part of a secure and close bond with the rest of Europe, provide human rights and justice that is shared, maintain continuing peace and security in these testing times, and keep the right wing braying attitudes at bay.

I don’t understand why the right wing newspapers want us to leave something which is so obviously to our economic and financial advantage (though I can see why they might dislike some of the social legislation — though that too is to our advantage).

The EU has prevented another European/World War; and has stopped the current appalling refugee crisis from provoking major border incidents and war between individual countries. We are not & have never been Little England; we need to get on with our neighbours. My family was devastated by the World Wars which started in Europe. I do not want this for my children and grandchildren. Plus all the economic, social and other benefits we gain in co-operation with our partner countries.

I am a Union representative and value the workers rights EU have given us. I believe in being European rather than British!

I feel European. I have lived and worked in both Paris (6+ years) and Brussels in an NGO (3 years). My wife was German, one of my sons is now Portuguese and I have an older brother who is resident in Greece. The EU defends human rights, and has prevented France and Germany going to war again.

For all its imperfections, the European community represents a degree of civilisation, long established human values and commitments to the idea of social justice and the interests of individuals rather than those of unaccountable corporations and big business. It’s our hedge against American values of corporate greed and unaccountability.

the future properity of Cambridge, and its position as a leading European city and thriving world-renowned research centre depends on us remaining in the European Union

Britain needs to be an enthusiastic contributor towards making Europe a wealthy, democratic, strongly moral example for countries and other groupings around the world.
