Excellent presentation by Lucy Peacock at the open CLP meeting in Ashbourne last night about what effect the EU really has on people running small and medium sized businesses. Lucy busted many of the myths propagated by the Out campaign and explained how businesses such as the high-tech engineering business she works for would be put at risk by Brexit.
The only disappointing aspect of the evening was that the many members of the public who claim that no-one is giving the information they need to help them decide didn't bother coming along to a meeting designed to do that.
Almost everyone at the meeting already understood the overwhelming articles in favour of remaining in Europe.
We had been anticipating some robust questioning but, only one person who attended the meeting was a determined Brexiter.
