Event:

David Torrance on ''A Guide For Voters'' in the EU referendum

Venue:
Waterstones, Trafalgar Square, London
Starts:
06:30pm
Ends:
06:30pm

DAVID TORRANCE, speaking about his book:
EU Referendum 2016: A Guide for Voters

The EU referendum faces us with a decision that has profound implications, whatever the outcome.

Feeling confused? Uncertain under a bombardment of contradictory and partisan views? Crying out for the information you need?

Join ERS' Darren Hughes for an evening with David Torrance, author of EU Referendum 2016: A Guide for Voters

David's clear, concise guide to the EU Referendum guide tackles the issues on everyone’s mind: trade, migration, education, finance, risk, security and sovereignty. Departing from the Westminster-centric and partisan views that have dominated the debate, Torrance also looks at the implications of Brexit for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - and therefore for England.

"We know that there is a clear link between how well informed people feel and their likelihood to vote. So we need to foster a deep and vibrant debate around the real issues – not the personalities. That’s why this book is a timely intervention"

–DARREN HUGHES, ELECTORAL REFORM SOCIETY, from his Introduction to EU Referendum 2016: A Guide for Voters
