Dan Snow, who co-organised the letter with TV Historian Tom Holland, said in advance of his visit: “I feel passionately about Britain and everything we’ve achieved together throughout our long shared history across these islands. I don’t have a vote in the Scottish referendum but I certainly have a view and I really hope that our shared country stays together.
“That’s why I’m leading a tour across the regions and nations of the rest of the UK to ensure that people sign up to the Let’s Stay together campaign at www.letsstaytogether.org.uk.”
The Let’s Stay Together campaign and Dan Snow have been touring the country, visiting the town halls of Stratford, Manchester, Corby, Birmingham, Southampton, Cardiff, Bath and Leeds to gather signatories and tell people about the campaign. The campaign has been inundated with requests for t-shirts and merchandise from those who have met Dan during the roadshow or heard about Let’s Stay Together.
