David Cameron and Brendan Barber urge Remain vote


Prime Minister David Cameron has joined forces with a former trade union leader to make his case for staying in the EU.The PM and ex-TUC general secretary Sir Brendan Barber said a vote to quit would be a “disaster for working people”. The two men said jobs would be lost and wages hit by the “shock” of a UK exit.
But Employment Minister Priti Patel will say in a speech later that firms are hampered by EU red tape and leaving would give them “freedom to prosper”.
In her speech to retailers, she will say government attempts to free small business from EU regulations have been “frustrated by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels”.
The UK will vote on 23 June on whether to remain part of the EU.
