Little Known EU Benefits

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.

There's much more hidden EU help: food labeling, access to healthcare abroad, equal pay rules and limits on hours worked in a week (48hrs if you didn't know) to name a few.

One of the biggest changes in the rest of Europe is that there were 13 dictatorships in Europe and since 1980 they have been transformed into democracies by the EU.

Simply put; the EU protects us and frees us. Vote to remain in the EU on referendum day to protect us and everyone in Europe.
