Timothy Kirkhope MEP debates the upcoming EU referendum across Yorkshire

This week two very different audiences heard Timothy Kirkhope MEP for Yorkshire & The Humber explain why he thinks Remain is the right way to vote in the forthcoming referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the EU.  Firstly, he was pleased to take part in a debate with sixth-form students at Richmond School, North Yorkshire. He enjoyed a lively and fruitful discussion with the students, some of whom will be voting for the first time in the upcoming referendum. Timothy was impressed to hear such eloquent views from the students; especially as, at the end of the day, it is the younger generation who will ultimately have to live the longest with the consequences of the choice we all make on the 23rd June.  The second occasion was an event organised by the West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce in Leeds where Timothy was alongside John Grogan (Stronger In), Philip Davies MP (Out) and John Moynihan (Vote Leave). The Yorkshire Building Society’s Chief Economist Andrew Philips was on hand with impartial facts and figures and the Chairman was veteran regional political broadcaster Len Tingle.
