David Cameron has pleaded for Britain to stay in the EU to help prevent the Continent being ripped apart by another conflict.
Mr Cameron today highlighted the UK’s role in bringing peace to Europe as he hit the referendum campaign trail – just hours before a rival speech by Boris Johnson.
In a key speech at the British Museum in London, the PM told pro-EU campaigners: “Can we be so sure peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking?
“I would never be so rash to make that assumption.”
And he said: “What happens in our neighbourhood matters to Britain. That was true in 1914, 1940, 1989…. and it is true in 2016.”
