We need to talk about the European Parliament elections…
Amidst the storms of Brexit, there has not been enough discussion of the European Parliament elections. The EU has made it clear that unless the Withdrawal Agreement is signed by 12 April, any extension will require the UK to participate in the European Parliament elections.
I fully support this motion, but it could go a lot further.
Although we are the only party to have taken an unequivocal Remain position, we have continuously failed to prevent the debate, in both parliament and the media, from focusing almost entirely on the virtues of a hard versus a soft Brexit. It is essential the debate is realigned – to be between Remain, on the one hand, and any form of Brexit, on the other.
