4) Keeps us safe

The EU helps bring criminals to justice and creates peace and stability.

The European Union has brought peace, stability and freedom to Europe, a continent which was devastated by war twice in the last century. Peace has not come about by accident and it should not be taken for granted. The EU is helping to tackle international threats in a way the UK couldn’t do if it was acting alone. The EU also helps police tackle crime, human trafficking and terrorism which is increasingly international in nature.

Did you know? The EU has brought peace and stability to Europe.

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
