‘OUR LOSS’

‘Our Loss’ sums up many of our views from across Europe:

• Showing the range and scale of some of the benefits of being a member of the EU.

• Sharing the deep concerns of those who will perhaps be most directly affected, by showing what they are likely to lose, in whole or in part.

It is vital that people know really what is at stake. Many of us have based our lives on living, loving and working across Europe.

Today's European Union is the largest political and economic union on the planet. This remarkable body has not only kept the peace in Europe, but has helped to transform 14 dictatorships into democratic societies.

We need to ask whether increasing public sector austerity and sliding living standards in the UK a price worth paying for leaving so much behind?

“So, where there was war, there is now peace. But another historic task now lies ahead of us: keeping peace where there is peace. After all, history is not a novel, a book we can close after a Happy Ending: we remain fully responsible for what is yet to come.”
(Herman Van Rompuy, 2012 - former President of the European Council)
