Prime Minister David Cameron has been at the O2 head offices in Slough today (Tuesday) to talk to staff and take questions on whether Britain should remain in the European Union.
Introducing himself to the large crowd which gathered at the offices in Bath Road, the Prime Minister was met with laughter when he said it was ‘great to be in Slough’.
He said Britain we will be 'stronger, safer and better off' as part of a reformed EU, which he believes offers ‘the best of both worlds’ and is the ‘right decision’. He also announced O2 was backing the campaign to remain part of the EU.
Mr Cameron said: “This [the EU referendum] is a really important decision and it is going to last for decades.”
The Conservative leader argued leaving the union could result in ‘a period of great uncertainty’ and could have a ‘bad economic effect’ in Britain.
Regarding Boris Johnson, the PM said: “I have huge respect for Boris Johnson, he is a fantastic Mayor of London and he has a lot to give to the Conservative party.
“On this issue, however, I think he has got it wrong.”
Mr Cameron added he would ensure that the financial sector, such as the banks and other authorities, will ‘set out the facts’ of what would happen if Britain leaves the EU, so ‘people can make their own judgement’.
