Baldry argues for Britain to remain in Europe

Over the coming months, we are going to hear much about the competing claims concerning the costs and benefits of our membership of the European Union. Almost all of this commentary is likely to consider our membership of the European Union as simply a “transactional” relationship – do we get more out of our membership of the European Union than we put in? There are, however, I think a number of other matters that we should consider which I should like to set out briefly in a personal reflection.

He did not lack the courage to fight to the death for justice for his just rights and inheritances that had been seized from him by violence and withheld for too long and it was his duty to recover.
