With the EU referendum just a day away, here are some of the arguments for and against Brexit from the perspective of people in south-east London.

The selection of views is taken from our letters pages this week.

Remain good for environment

The EU referendum is the environmental decision of a lifetime.

Tackling climate change, protecting wildlife and cleaning up our environment needs international cooperation.

Endangered species, fragile ecosystems, oil spills and livestock diseases do not obey man-made boundaries, and neither do the winds, floods and storms that grow fiercer every year.

Governments come and go; policy is written and re-written according to the whims of those in power.

We need to work together, across borders, to prevent governments and corporations from promising the kind of rapid economic expansion, which can only be fuelled by the exploitation of dirty fuels and irreplaceable natural resources.

It will take all 28 countries operating under common laws to form a trade bloc big enough to ensure countries like India and China can only produce and sell high-quality ethical and sustainable goods.

The EU has banned bee killing pesticides, water quality laws have cleaned up our beaches, reformed fishing quotas have seen cod and haddock stocks rebound, curbing sulphur and nitrogen dioxide emissions has improved air quality, energy hungry lightbulbs are banned and EU grants have allowed farmers to make the leap into multi-use farms and made small scale organic projects viable.

Will a vote to leave kill trade? Probably not.

Is the EU fully representative and efficient? No.

But has it been good for the environment, most definitely yes!

Why I’m for remain vote

In 1917 in a battle at the place they called Passchendaele my father, a private in the Middlesex Regiment, was severely wounded in the head.

He fell barely alive into stinking mud and human remains that formed ‘No Man’s Land’.

His life was saved by a French surgeon who drilled a hole in his forehead and extracted a splinter from a German shell. My father lived a restricted life until he died in 1972.

Of course, my father was not alone. At that time there were many thousands of wounded British servicemen.

Their suffering and that of their carers is inestimable.

To me the memory of that war is the strongest reason for remaining in the EU, although it matters less to me – I am 93.

Lest we forget.

Time to take back control of our money

Leaving the EU will mean we can take back control of the billions of pounds we send to the EU in membership fees and spend it on our priorities.

Over the next five years, the EU will demand £100bn from our taxes, and only some of that will be returned in so-called EU schemes.

Just think of the improvements we can make to our NHS, schools and housing by investing in our priorities instead of the EU deciding how our money is spent.

We would be free to secure trade deals with countries across the world and cut back on unnecessary EU red tape.

Do not believe the scare stories – Britain has the skills, talent, entrepreneurs and ingenuity to succeed, grow and create more jobs.

We would be able to take back control of our borders and reform our immigration system.

We can keep numbers at a sustainable level to ease pressures on housing, the NHS and school places and maintain our status as the world’s most tolerant and multicultural country.

And we can put a stop to the EU’s army of unaccountable and unelected bureaucrats making the laws that govern our country.

Leaving the EU means we can take powers away from out of touch elites in Brussels and put power back into our hands. We will be able to vote in and vote out the MPs, politicians and governments who make the laws that affect us. Our democracy will be restored.

Five clear reasons for UK to leave EU

The reasons for leaving the EU are simple.

1. Return law-making to UK elected representatives who we can sack.

2. Control the numbers of people settling in this country and begin the long process of catching up building houses, school places, health facilities and transport.

3. Restore Britain’s influence in the world by regaining our seat and voice on scores of world bodies, currently taken by the EU.

4. Join 160-plus countries that trade with the EU but without being subject to laws that have nothing to do with cross-border trade.

5. Being free to make trade deals with countries, quicker and better than the EU.

I predict no shocks from leaving. Trade will carry on as before, Germany will continue to sell us billions-of-pounds of goods, France will continue to sell cheese and wine, and people will carry on travelling on business and holiday without special permits.

In fact, we won’t notice much change – except perhaps a restored sense of pride.
