David Cameron said he wanted people to vote for a Great Britain in the EU, not for “the little England of Nigel Farage”.
I hope that when people go to vote on June 23 they think about their children and grandchildren, they think about the jobs and the opportunities they want for them, the sort of country we want to build together and they vote to say ‘we don’t want the little England of Nigel Farage’, we want to be Great Britain and we are great if we stay in these organisations and fight for the values we believe in.
He said leaving the EU could hasten the break-up of the UK. Previously he has rejected the argument that a vote to leave the EU could justify a second Scottish independence referendum. But tonight he said:
You don’t strengthen your country by leading to its break-up.
Nigel Farage said it was worth cutting immigration even if that meant lower GDP, because there was more to life than economic growth. He said:
Do you know something? There is more to this country, there is more about this community than just being competitive … What I’m saying is that it’s wrong, wrong, wrong for average decent people in this country their living standards are falling by about 10%. It’s about time we were not thinking about GDP, the rich getting richer, and think about ordinary decent people who are having a rotten time.
