The upcoming EU referendum is a big talking point this week, with a divided Conservative Party and battle lines being drawn it is clear that we are in for an intense few months. Senior figures in the conservative party such as Iain Duncan Smith, secretary of state for work and pensions, are already opening debate with strong points about the economic situation if we stay in the EU. The difficult part for our generation going into this referendum is learning about the pros and cons without having the biased spin of the political Parties stamped over it.
Some politicians have already started with the inflammatory scaremongering tactics of talking about the threat of terrorism that will give many people a blinkered view of the referendum, and while there is nothing wrong with wanting to be safe it is important to consider more than one aspect. It will be interesting to see the full deal that David Cameron reached at the meeting in Brussels and whether the agreements he came to impact upon us immediately in the short term or whether Cameron has actually prepared for the countries future.
Don’t forget to vote in the upcoming referendum on Thursday the 23rd of June!
