Sir Andrew Large, former deputy director of the Bank of England, signed the launch letter for Business for Britain in 2013; now he’s going to vote to stay
by Sir Andrew Large
Three years ago, I was fed up with the European Union. The policies emerging from Brussels were frustrating in their own right and seemed to be taking us inexorably towards an ever closer union.
I knew that the British people did not want that, and nor did I. People who set out to negotiate with Brussels were at their wits’ end.
Brussels suffered from a democratic deficit and the EU was the source of unconstrained migration.
So, in 2013, I signed the launch letter for Business for Britain, hoping to campaign for real change in the EU. I did not expect this transformation to be quick. But I wanted all the issues on the table.
