Ed Miliband claims quitting EU makes UK more vulnerable to terrorists

Ed Miliband suggested leaving the EU would leave Britain vulnerable to terror attacks, prompting a backlash from Eurosceptic campaigners including Get Britain Out:

“Anti-Brussels campaigners accused the Labour leader of attempting to make “political capital out of the Paris shootings.”

Mr Miliband made the remark during a question-and-answer session with voters in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

“Think about terrorism and counter-terrorism. We are much better working across borders to do that,” said the Labour leader, who attended the mass demonstration against terrorism and extremism in Paris on Sunday.”

Get Britain Out was quoted in the Daily Express piece:

“Ed Miliband’s attempt today to make political capital out of the Paris shootings is beneath contempt, but unable to make a coherent argument for Britain’s remaining in the EU, stooping this low is the only option for the Europhiles.

“Terrorism is a global issue which will be overcome by co-operation between sovereign states across the globe, rendering Britain’s membership of the EU redundant in the fight against extremism.

“If anything, the imposition of EU integration on a reluctant European population is somewhat to blame for the rise of extreme political parties across the Continent.

“This is hardly a ringing endorsement of the EU’s role in safeguarding peace in Europe and the quicker we are able to Get Britain Out of the EU, the better.”
