Michael has announced his support for Britain remaining in the European Union following the conclusion of the Prime Minister’s renegotiation.
Michael said: “The Prime Minister’s renegotiation of our relationship with the EU is substantial. It will now give Britain special status within the EU and ensure our sovereignty is maintained, with the exemption from ‘ever closer union’.
Whether or not to remain in this reformed EU is a decision for the British people and my vote counts as much as anyone else’s.
I remain a Eurosceptic. But Britain’s national security is paramount and we are safer and stronger inside the EU: leaving would be a big gamble on an uncertain future.”
