CEFEUS Director calls for factual referendum debate in conversation with Lembit Opik

CEFEUS Director Dr Amelia Hadfield appeared on Lembit Opik’s radio show on BBC Radio Kent last Sunday (8th May) to discuss the results of the local elections and the current state-of-play in British politics. Dr Hadfield is a frequent contributor to Lembit’s programme and is regularly called upon to discuss current political issues in Britain and Europe. On Sunday’s programme she appeared alongside Liberal Democrat councillor James Willis and Deputy Leader of the Medway Labour Group, Teresa Murray. Asked specifically to comment on the course of the referendum debate, Dr Hadfield called for an honest discussion of the value of the EU, free from mistruths and inaccurate ‘facts’. Asked which was she would be voting, Dr Hadfield indicated she would be ‘voting with her heart’, and hoped the content of the debate would allow others to do the same.
