"For those concerned with personal and national safety, we will stress the measures that states in the EU have agreed. The European Arrest Warrant has allowed us to arrest and deport criminals across previously difficult frontiers in Europe. Fundamental rights for all of the EU’s 500 million citizens are guaranteed, and expected of any country applying to join. At the same time, the EU’s development and humanitarian aid budget helps secure the lives of the world’s most vulnerable, and bring them up towards our own standard of living.
The Leave side inflates figures on costs, and ignores that for every £1 we put into the EU we get almost £10 back through increased investment, trade, jobs, growth and lower prices. That represents a good deal.
Voters in Scotland will have a very clear choice come June 23. They will have the whole range of rights and responsibilities built up over decades, or the policy void and political aspirations of Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and George Galloway.
Scotland Stronger In Europe is confident that Scots will consider themselves to be stronger, safer and better-off in Europe. We will make every effort to win each vote for Remain. In doing so, voters in Scotland may well make the difference in keeping all of the UK’s nations and regions in Europe."
