David says. "This election is all about the future. Whether we are in Europe or out, we need to tackle the climate emergency, a struggling economy, a health service under ever increasing pressure and the inequalities in our society.

"The last 3 years has seen our country divided and in chaos. The world has changed since the days of the British Empire and we need to work together to solve problems. Leaving the EU will not be good for our economy, the environment, for the future of our young people. We need to put an end to this."
