The EU in/out referendum presents Britain’s voters with their most important decision since the Second World War.
Throughout the region there have already been been a series of debates on the subject, but disappointingly, at the three events I’ve attended, the “remain in” campaign has been poorly represented.
UKIP’s Stuart Agnew, Anna Coke, Patrick O’Flynn and Suzanne Evans, all of them accomplished speakers, have invariably presented a convincing case for voting to leave the EU.
However, it would be encouraging if, for example, Henry Bellingham, Liz Truss, Norman Lamb and Jo Rust could be persuaded to take part in an open debate.
The very least they should do is to show their supporters how they stand. It is indeed high time that all our politicians show their true colours on this most important decision.
