Former Worcester MP, Mike Foster, who served the City from 1997 to 2010 has today outlined his reasons for supporting the “Remain In” campaign ahead of the forthcoming EU Referendum.
Mr Foster has written an open letter to the local media outlining the economic, social and security case for the UK remaining a part of the EU. This follows his appearance at Worcester Sixth Form College’s EU Question Time last week.
Commenting on why he has written, Mr Foster said:
“Ballot papers will shortly be issued to postal voters, as this referendum gets closer. I could not in all honesty sit back and allow the vote to take place without letting the people who I served for thirteen years know what I thought. I could have had a quiet life, but I didn’t do that as Worcester’s MP and this decision is too important to ignore.”
“I hope to have outlined some of the reasons for remaining in and knowing the City as I do, I fully appreciate what the impact of leaving would be. Economic instability may be loved by predators out to make a quick buck, but not by the average working family. Brexit, as it is called, brings huge risks with no certain benefits.”
“Whether people voted for me in the past, or not, I urge everyone to use their vote to Remain In.”
