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.

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.
