  • People are worried about immigration – Labour must devise a fair system and reunite the country

    January 09, 2017

    Written with Emma Reynolds MP, published in The Guardian The EU referendum was a vote for change on immigration. Free movement of people was rejected and now, as shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer stated in his recent Bloomberg speech, “the status quo is not an option”. Some in the Labour party claim the proponents of managed migration are “Ukip-lite”. We reject this argument, which leaves a vacuum for the right to fill.

And with Boris and the Brexiteers blundering around like bulls in a china shop, we know that the work of our diplomatic corps has never been more important.

  • On Brexit Parliament Should Be Holding The Government To Account But Not To Ransom

    December 28, 2016

      South Wales Evening Post ‘Taking back control’ was at the very heart of the argument to leave the EU, but unfortunately Theresa May's shambolic approach means that six months on from the referendum we are still none the wiser when it comes to the type of Brexit the UK government is planning to negotiate. It is therefore high time that the Prime Minister brings her plan to Parliament. The British people need and deserve to know how their government is planning to handle this immensely complex process, arguably the most important political challenge since the Second World War.
