I am proud to be a member of the European Community – community, for me, means looking out for each other, supporting those who are struggling, trying to improve the environment in which we all live, finding ways of innovating and developing change for the betterment of all, defending each other, being honest with each other.  I do not want to turn my back on my European Community, I want to remain part of it and all it brings.  It might not be a perfect community – where is? – but what it offers is so much better than being lonely, isolated, friendless, unsupported, on our own.
