Cameron urges parents and grandparents to vote Remain for sake of future generations

PM David Cameron

David Cameron has pleaded with parents and grandparents to vote to stay in the European Union for the sake of the younger generations of Britons.

The UK prime minister warned that the economic impact of Brexit would hit jobs and opportunities for years to come.

“These are risks to our families and we should not take them,” he said.

He warned that “future generations” would be “hit hardest” as he spoke outside 10 Downing Street.

Mr Cameron said: “For you, for your family, for the future of our country, vote Remain.

Opinion polls have suggested that older voters are more likely to back Brexit and Mr Cameron addressed them directly.

He said: “I want to speak very directly to those of my generation and older. I know Europe isn’t perfect, believe me I understand and I see those frustrations. I feel them myself.

“That’s why we negotiated and enhanced our special status – out of the euro, keeping our borders, not involved in ever closer union. We have the best of both worlds.

“So as you take this decision, whether to remain or leave, do think about the hopes and dreams of your children and grandchildren. They know their chances to work, to travel, to build the sort of open and successful society they want to live in rests on this outcome.

“And remember, they can’t undo the decision we take. If we vote out, that’s it. It is irreversible. We will leave Europe for good.

“The next generation will have to live with the consequences far longer than the rest of us.”

On Thursday “it will just be you in that polling booth”, he said, “taking a decision that will affect your future, your children’s future, your grandchildren’s future”.

He said: “Our economic security is paramount. It will be stronger if we stay; if we leave we will put it at risk. “That is a risk to jobs, a risk to families, a risk to our children’s future and there is no going back.”

Brexit will be a landslide because it is the only hope we have from escaping Dodgy Dave and his handlers that do not pay taxes but want to destroy our NHS and give us GMO

He has failed as a prime minister and he really hates his country. What a sell out!

They have no love for Britain whatsoever. His cronnies have sold us out completely and it will take us at least a decade to repair the damages. People please vote Brexit.

Dave you are over, you should not have brought in all the elites from abroad to lecture us. We can be great again without the EU.

Jun 21, 2016 4:51 pm

It’s over Dave, you are a sell out, to think that I voted for you last year.

All Osborne and Cameron have done is scared the living daylight out of us so I find it rather rich that he his back appealing to us.

He should never have invited David Beckham to this whole campaign, the guy is thick and the British public know this. He is just better of modeling those pants of his.
