Gordon Brown has released a short video message in which he expresses clear reasons for voting to remain in the EU in the national referendum on June 23rd.
In the film, Brown praises Britain’s historic role in securing peace and advancing the cause of democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Europe.
Filmed in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral for a new pro-European People’s IN campaign, the former Prime Minister describes how we now live in “a Europe where decisions are made by dialogue, discussion and debate. A Europe where the only battle is a battle of ideas. A Europe where we fight with arguments and not with armaments. A Europe that is at peace because of what Britain did to establish freedom across the whole of the continent.”
He goes on to state: Our troops walked into Bergen Belsen, exposed the horrors of the Holocaust and said we would fight, fight and fight again to end the evil of anti-Semitism across the world.
Mr Brown argues: “smaller nations look to us for leadership. What message would we send to the rest of the world if we the British people – the most internationally minded of all – were to walk away from our nearest neighbours?”
He concludes: ”We should be leading in Europe, and not leaving it.”
The video is being shared on social media by the Jewish Labour Movement.
