What can be gained from a UK referendum on Europe?


Summary

British Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum on the UK’s membership of a reformed EU by the end of 2017. Dylan Sharpe, Campaign Director of campaigning group Business for Britain, explained his vision of how the EU should change and how this could benefit Britain and the rest of the EU.


Program

In 2013 the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, pledged to hold a referendum on the UK’s membership of a reformed EU by the end of 2017.

 

With the Conservatives being the only major party to make such an offer to the British people, New Direction hosted a timely seminar to get beneath the referendum question.

 

Dylan Sharpe, Campaign Director of Business for Britain, argued that from a British business perspective the EU needs to change and that this would benefit not only Britain but the rest of the EU.

 

The pledge by the Prime Minister David Cameron to hold a referendum in 2017 offers those who advocate British withdrawal from the EU a chance to make their case for a Global Britain.. But it also affords an opportunity for those who believe in EU membership to push for reform and endeavour to secure  the endorsement of the British people.

 

Business for Britain consistently argues that the status quo in the UK's relationship with the EU is not working, and that the British Government is right to seek a new deal for Britain.
