It’s been a really busy week. I’ve been in Brighton for Party Conference, and in my new role as Leader of the EPLP I gave a speech this morning to the floor. You can watch it below:
I warned how Britain’s influence in the world would become weakened if a Conservative Government is returned at the next General Election, and highlighted that although David Cameron pretends that the toxic Tory brand has changed, all the time his Euro MPs are clear proof that it has not.
As for the general mood in Brighton – it has been upbeat and there is a real sense of fighting spirit and a determination not to sleepwalk into a general election defeat. The Tories are vulnerable when it comes to their policies and their stance towards Europe and it is the job of every one of us to expose this vulnerability starting from today.
