Nick Clegg: Believing In Britain's Values

This afternoon I told our conference that if you have faith in this country, if you believe in Britain’s values, then we have to fight for them.

Last month I challenged Nigel Farage to a debate on Britain’s future in Europe. I did so because an ungenerous, backwards looking politics has emerged in Britain. The politics of blame has found an acceptable face: it wears a big smile and looks like someone you could have a pint with down the pub.

So I’m drawing a line in the sand.

I am going to defend the tolerant and modern Britain we love, and I am going to start by showing people what’s at stake at the upcoming European elections: do you want Britain in Europe, or out?

Thousands have people have already backed our campaign to protect jobs and keep Britain in Europe.

I’m asking you to join them today by adding your name to our campaign.

The Liberal Democrats are now Britain’s only party of IN. The only party out there explaining the clear benefits of Britain’s place in Europe. The only party giving people the facts. Being in Europe creates jobs, helps us fight climate change and allows our police forces to work together to catch criminals who cross borders. These things matter too much for us to ignore them.

The first debate is in just a couple of weeks. By joining the thousands of people who have already added their names to our campaign, you’ll be showing those people who want to pull Britain out of Europe that they aren’t going to have this all their own way.

Click here to join our campaign now, and help protect those jobs.

Thank you,

Nick Clegg MP
Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats
