Prime Minister David Cameron took questions from readers at the EDP's Norwich office in an EU Referendum debate on Tuesday afternoon.
He finished the debate by saying he was privileged to sit two yards from where Winston Churchill sat in 1940.
'He didn't quit on Europe then and we don't quit on Europe now. That is not the country we are. We are fighters and we get out there and we win for Britain,' he said.
'That is how we make this country great,' he added. 'Not by pretending we can tow our island to a more convenient part of the world.'
Mr Cameron was in Norwich to answer questions from an audience of around 40 EDP readers in our Norwich newsroom.
