Caroline Pidgeon today hit out at Boris Johnson’s decision to back the Out campaign in the EU referendum.
“You only need to look at the drop in the value of UK sterling today to see what damage pulling out of the EU would cause” said Caroline Pidgeon.
“The Mayor's budget which was debated at the London Assembly this morning supports a £77.5mn jobs/growth strategy which states it needs membership of EU to succeed. The Mayor's position doesn't stack up.
"I will make the case for Britain to stay in the EU with London the number one business and financial centre in Europe. It would be insane to leave and would cost tens of thousands of jobs in London alone. Together the EU has created the world's largest free trade area, delivered peace, and continues to give the Londoners the opportunity to live, work and travel freely. History shows that London - and Britain - is better when it is united with Europe "
