The very first campaign I ran as a political candidate back in December 2007 was to go to the Isles of Scilly, the most westerly point of the UK, to call for a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, i.e. EU membership.
Today MPs will be asked to support the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement. The motion itself does not count as a ‘meaningful vote’ because it does not cover the future relationship with Europe. However, if it passes it will allow Article 50 to be extended to May 22.
Our planet matters. Today I asked Dr Thérèse Coffey, Environment Minister if she would meet with me to support a project to plant 20,000 trees with school children across West Cornwall by the end of 2020 to help address air quality.
Tonight there have been a number of votes in Parliament, first a vote passing legislation to allow the UK to leave without a deal on April 12th rather than revoke Article 50, reversing the outcome of the EU referendum.
