THE EVESHAM Branch of the Labour Party has launched its campaign for the UK to stay in the EU.

Party supporters have recently taken to the streets to find out the views of residents and found most people are ‘perplexed’ and not sure which way to vote.

Branch Secretary, David Haslam believes the EU ‘deal’ is far from perfect and that leaving would certainly reduce the UK’s influence both within Europe and out.

“‘Our place in the EU seems in the balance, although we will still be in Europe whichever way the vote goes. To leave at this point in time would surely send the wrong message that we don’t really want to be in Europe at all,” said Mr Haslam.

“But what could be better than being a part of such a diverse and fascinating family of nations with their art, music, languages, food and wonderfully varied countryside.

“In or out, we can’t scrap the rules and will have to abide by them in trading with Europe. We believe it’s better to work from within so we can have a strong voice and keep working on improvements rather than starting again from scratch,” he added.

The party will continue to campaign over the next couple of months, distributing information leaflets and newsletters around the town.
