Over 300 historians have signed a letter to the Guardian Newspaper in support of the UK remaining in the EU. The signatories include Simon Schama, Ian Kershaw, Niall Ferguson, Robert Lacey and Juliet Gardiner.
The letter reads:
“As historians of Britain and of Europe, we believe that Britain has had in the past, and will have in the future, an irreplaceable role to play in Europe. On 23 June, we face a choice: to cast ourselves adrift, condemning ourselves to irrelevance and Europe to division and weakness; or to reaffirm our commitment to the EU and stiffen the cohesion of our continent in a dangerous world”.
