Amber Rudd MP visits University of Kent to campaign for Britain Stronger In

Amber Rudd, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, came to the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus on 13 April to campaign for Britain Stronger In Europe.

Rudd was greeted by students representing the University’s branch of Stronger In, who asked her questions about the upcoming referendum on 23 June.

The MP for Hastings and Rye was very definite about her position on the EU, stating: “I am completely clear that we are better off in. All the alternatives are worse.”

Speaking about the importance of the student vote in the June Referendum, Rudd was clear about the risks to young people.

“I am focusing my visit today on young people because they are the ones, a lot of whom haven’t made up their minds, but I think have the most to lose if we do leave,” she said.

Canterbury is known to be one of the areas where a lot of people have fallen off the electoral register due to recent changes, and it is thought that the people who haven’t re-registered could make a huge difference to the result of the referendum.
