Media Release: Crying out for impartial information on the EU referendum?


A NEW book from one of Scotland’s best-known political commentators tackles what is widely viewed to be an urgent need for information surrounding the EU referendum debate, addressing the issues on everyone’s mind: trade, migration, education, finance, risk, security and sovereignty.

David Torrance’s ‘EU Referendum 2016: A Guide for Voters’ is sure to enhance voter participation and the process of making a decision that will have profound consequences for us all.

Begins a spokesperson: “The book is a response to a bombardment of contradictory and partisan views on EU membership.

“Committed to the democratic process and the principles of impartial journalism, Torrance departs from Westminster-centric reporting.

“He takes a UK-wide perspective, discussing the implications of Brexit for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – and therefore for England.

“He also provides a concise history of Britain in Europe, a summary of David Cameron’s renegotiation of UK’s terms of membership and an assessment of how much EU costs.”


Notes for editors:

David Torrance and Daren Hughes of the Electoral Reform Society will be speaking at Waterstones, Trafalgar Square, London on 1 June at 6.30pm. For more details, click here.
