    The Liberal Democrats candidates for the Nottingham Constituencies at the last General election have called for a strong remain vote on Thursdays' referendum.

    Tony Sutton, who stood in Nottingham North in 2015 and Nottingham South in 2010, said "I think that within Europe we have a major influence on the policies and future direction of one of the most powerful group of nations in the world. Our economic prosperity and security are so closely linked with the other members that it is vital that we remain a committed and active member of the union in our own self interest and for the benefit of Europe as a whole."

    On the sunny bank holiday just gone, a bunch of dedicated souls came to the Sherwood methodist church for the Nottingham City Liberal Democrats spring conference. The focus of this years conference was definitely on the membership itself, with sessions focusing on equality and diversity as well as what it takes to be a candidate at a local and national level. We were also fortunate enough to have as a guest kate godwin of Stronger IN who gave us some surprising insight into why Nottingham is one of the most important cities in the European referendum.

    There are loads of unknown benefits to our membership of the EU, for instance did you know it was the EU who brought in rules to ban lead in petrol? Likewise, it was the EU who banned smoking in workplaces?

    It's fair to say that the UK government could have done these things, but they didn't; never mind which political party was in no. 10 they could have brought in these rules and didn't.

    The decision to remain or leave the EU is a news 'hot topic' at the moment and a lot of the argument by the national figures on the subject has largely focused on 'out there' and obscure arguments around cryptic subjects like 'sovereignty' and 'control'. These mysterious claims ignore the real everyday benefits that Nottingham residents like you and I get from the Britain's membership of the EU.

Join UsThe Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity.

We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.

We believe the UK is better off in the EU, and we will fight the next election on a clear and unequivocal promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the United Kingdom in the European Union, not out.
