Imagine you’re going to buy a new TV. You want it to be able to record programmes, connect to the internet, have Netflix and surround sound. The salesman confidently tells you that your new purchase has all of this and more. But once you get your new TV home, you discover that not only does it have none of these features, it’s not even colour. Your promised world-leading, unbeatable, top-of-the-range television is a black and white set. Put simply, you’ve been sold a dud.

The will of the people was not a vote for border queues, subsidy cuts, or neglect of our public services

Brexit Update  

 

Last weekend the Labour Party’s position on Brexit moved on.  The position is now that Britain should remain in both the Single Market and the Customs Union through a necessary transition period after March 2019 and keeps this open as a long term option.  This couldn’t be more important for the South West as, for example, our region is one of the largest manufacturing regions in the UK and relies on the truly frictionless trade and customs arrangements that the Single Market and Customs Union ensure.  I am hopeful that this sensible move from the Party leadership allied with the arithmetic in Westminster will see the UK staying as members of these two vital agreements in the future.

Last week, we welcomed Tom into the office to do a few days of work experience. He was a great help and as part of his work wrote a blog reflecting on his time in the office:
 
When entering an office focused on a topic as sensitive as the United Kingdom’s relationship with the United Kingdom it is difficult to know what to expect. I was tentative to say the least, however, I’m glad to say that the experience was enjoyable, and helped me gain a perspective of the uncertain future that faces everyone across the UK.

It is five years since the UK opened our doors to the world through hosting the Olympic and Paralympic games, including holding parts of the games in my South West constituency. From Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony onwards, that summer of 2012 showed Britain at its best — open, tolerant, world-leading and world-embracing.

It was great to spend the weekend at the Tolpuddle Martyrs' festival in Dorset. Tolpuddle is a celebration and commemoration of the sacrifice that those agricultural workers made back in 1834 in order to try and organise for better wages and better lives.

A year after the referendum and 3 months after the letter triggering Article 50, negotiations have finally actually started.  It is right that the first item in the negotiations is about people, the EU27 and the UK both made clear they want the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU to be one of the first issues to be resolved.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus+ Programme, which started life in 1987 as a student mobility programme and has since helped millions of young people to travel abroad to study and work, gaining invaluable experience and skills but, vitally, building understanding and links across borders. It’s wonderful that over the 30 years so many students from across the country have benefitted from Erasmus+, with over 50,000 students participating in the programme over the last couple of years alone. This important anniversary is being marked with numerous events across Europe including here at the European Parliament.
