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.

As I write this, Theresa May is Prime Minister and the negotiations regarding the UK leaving the EU are still due to begin next week. But forgive me for feeling as if everything else in politics, including in our own region, has been somewhat turned upside down.

A packed week involved lots of good things happening in Brussels as well as at home in the constituency. 

It was great to be with Keir Starmer, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, along with Labour’s excellent Parliamentary candidates in Bristol on Friday. I chaired an event at Bristol University on Friday at which Keir and Thangam Debbonaire (Bristol West) spoke about Brexit and how the Labour Party and its candidates are the progressive choice in the upcoming General Election - it was encouraging to see so many young people engaging with both the election and the topic at hand. In the evening, I attended the Society of Labour Lawyers dinner in Bristol with Keir, Kerry McCarthy (Bristol East), Karin Smyth (Bristol South) and Thangam.

Last Thursday saw the first of two sets of elections to be held in the next month. The local elections took place across most of the South West, including the inaugural contest for the West of England (Bristol, BANES and South Glos) Metro Mayor where our excellent candidate, Lesley Mansell, came within a whisker of winning the contest.

The General Election campaign continues with Labour offering policy commitments that will improve the lives of people across the South West and the rest of Britain, while Theresa May and the Tories avoid speaking to voters at all, let alone telling the people what they intend to do if they win.

Keir Starmer’s announcement that one of our policies is that on “Day One” of a Labour Government, we will unilaterally guarantee the rights of EU citizens living and working in the UK. This is absolutely the right thing to do, for the people concerned but also it is a positive action to take with regards to the negotiations with our partners and neighbours in the EU27.

Like nearly everyone else in the world of politics, I was taken by surprise when Theresa May announced the snap General Election from the steps of Downing Street. She and her spokespeople had repeatedly said there would not be an early election and she claims to be a woman who sticks to her promises - something that is now clearly questionable and makes me wonder whether they will stand by anything else she promises, including the forthcoming Tory manifesto.

Last Wednesday, Theresa May sent the letter to the European Council invoking Article 50 and formally starting the UK’s process of leaving the EU. It was an emotional afternoon all round in the European Parliament. Last year during the referendum campaign, we had the support of so many of our European neighbours. There is an enormous affection for the British and deep regret both that we lost the referendum and also for the way that the UK Government have chosen to interpret the result.
