I’ve just realised that a few years ago I wrote a tiny app to let people sign the Cleanweb manifesto: https://github.com/cleanweb-uk/manifesto-signup.
It let people use their social media accounts to agree to a statement, and then tweet their agreement. It occurred to me that we could repurpose this to have a “sign Something New’s EU statement” app, to let people pledge to vote in, and agree to our reasons why they should, then share it.
I’ll adapt it a little over the weekend (shouldn’t take long) and post back here with the result. What statement should we make, do you think?
First stab, something like this but better written:
We the undersigned, agree that the UK should remain in the European Union. The future is about collaboration, and national borders are becoming less relevant in our globalised world. The EU is not perfect, but we believe it is better to stay in the EU and work to make it better than to abandon it completely.
Thoughts, improvements, etc etc, fire away.
