Déjà Vu: Rehashed Remain Letter Coming Tomorrow

This is the template letter being sent round FTSE businesses by Downing Street, lined up for a story in tomorrow’s papers. Feel familiar? It’s very much the same old stuff we heard last month:

“We own and run more than — businesses, from micro companies to the FTSE 100.

We know our firms are stronger in Europe. Our reasons are straightforward: businesses and their employees benefit massively from being able to trade inside the world’s largest single market without barriers. As business people, we are always looking to the future – and a future inside the European Union is where we see more opportunities for investment, growth and new jobs….

Britain leaving the EU would mean uncertainty for our firms, less trade with Europe and fewer jobs. Britain remaining in the EU would mean the opposite – more certainty, more trade and more jobs. EU membership is good for business and good for British jobs. That’s why, on June 23rd, we back Britain remaining in the EU.”

It didn’t exactly work when they tried it a few weeks ago…
